First of all- you usually only want one snail at a time (at least for smaller tanks), because they reproduce very quickly.

Second- Contrary to popular belief, a 1.5 gallon tank is not suitable for any fish. Sadly, they exist only to make money for their creators. Bettas should have about 5 gallons.

Snails are pretty cool... you could get a nice snail on Aquabid.com (ebay for fish people), or you could get shrimp, which I hear are pretty awesome.

Some people use this size tank for one Betta but it must have a heater and a filter. Mine had his own 10 gal to himself. Some Betta keepers would take a 10g and divide it in half or 3. There are mixed opinions in here but we really should get the biggest tank we can afford with the most space possible.
I have used this size for a temp hospital tank...

usuaully the standard 5 gallon is cheaper ( or just as much ) as some of these 1 gallon tanks. you could prob. also find a 10 gallon for cheap or close to nothing on your local craigslist. if i already had this tank i personally would use it for plants and shrimp.

Cool concept though. I think it would be cooler if the LCD screen had temp, chemical, and filtration readings as well as monitoring water parameters. One of those on a bigger tank would be awesome :p And like if you could set the time for lights and everything haha.
