I would just do a pair of Badis badis in a 10g. They can be pretty territorial. My male is a bit of a jerk and prescribes to the "tough love" school of relationships, haha. So plenty of hiding spaces are needed so the female can get away. Unlike, say, kribs, they don't spend all of their time together. I'm pretty sure they eat small snails but not bigger ones; I've got some gigantic pond snails in the tank that are constantly laying eggs but I never see any of the young snails so I assume they're getting eaten. They'll eat just about any live food - small shrimp, worms, small fish, you name it. I also feed mine frozen food (bloodworms, brine shrimp, chopped krill, mysis, etc.). Really interesting little guys.
Dwarf puffers are cool fish, too. Definitely worth getting if you can't get your hands on the badis.
