if I put a snail in a tank with a betta would the betta harm the snail? It would be an apple snail probably.

anything less than 5 gallons is animal abuse..

5.5 should be good for a betta, its just plain cruel to have one in anything less than 5..

Actually some Betta's have been known to mess with the snails antennae. Mine has never bothered my Apple snails at all. So - keep an eye on them. My biggest concern is that the tank is so small the Betta may get bored and mess with the snail just for something to do.
