Betta and clean up crew

What would be a suitable mini clean up crew to live with a betta?

That would depend on the size of the tank. Are you wanting them for food cleanup?

It's a 5 gallon. Not really for food. I don't put anymore food in that the betta will eat. I put 2 cherry shrimp in today.

You could put a mystery snail or a couple of nerite snails. Possibly an oto but that may be pushing stocking limits.

Don't be surprised if the Betta eats the shrimp if he can catch them. Nerite snails work well in Betta set ups because they don't have long antennae that way around like most other snails do. A single oto isn't a good choice as they do better in groups and a 5g is just too small. Hope the shrimp work out.
