My boyfriend has a 1 gallon tank with a filter. He really wants to put something in it but doesn’t know what. He’s thinking 2 or 3 guppies, or some kind of shrimp, or maybe snails? He wants something that is not just plants. He doesn’t mind buying other supplies either if they are needed. What are some good options for him to consider? He’s never had any aquatic animal or aquarium before, but he wants to start off small & learn more about it so that we can have a nice big beautiful aquarium one day.

You really can't put any fish in a 1 gallon tank. Most guppies and tetras like to school, so they would need a bigger tank. He could get some shrimp or snails though. If he at least upgrades to a 5 he can get a betta

Shrimp or one snail would be good. Just tell him to research research research what he chooses first.

If he were to put shrimp or snails, how many could he have? 1? 2? Also, Would he be able to have both shrimp, & snail together?

Alot of information online is conflicting with one & another. Do you have any links you can recommend?

Decide what type of fish you really want to keep. Then look up everything you can find about it. I frequently read and watch videos about fish, supplies, and techniques.

Sure you can put shrimp with snails, but you need to find what species you want. Then how many gallons it needs, what temperature, ph, and so on. It all has to work for both types of animals.

There are so many great videos on youtube about pretty much any fish you search for.
