1 gallon aquarium?
Can I put 2 amano shrimp and a nerite snail in there? If not, what else should I put in?

Can it be used as a quartine / hospital tank?

I have one of these in my daughters room with a Crown Tail Betta in it.I change water every other day.I'm getting a 5g since that would really be better for the fish.Shrimp and snails might be ok.I've never kept shrimp so someone with more knowledge on them will have to say for sure.As for a QT tank,personally I would use at least a 10g.1g might be ok for 1 or 2 very small fish.

I personally wouldnt use it as a q tank to small and a fish that is being qd is already under stress more than likely and a tiny tank would just contribute. Im sure the shrimp would do fine and a betta would def do fine seeing how those things live basically in mud puddles in the wild from what i hear,.

I thought not even a betta can live in it.
