Just set up a new 10 gal tank with 4 neon tetras, 3 ghost shrimp, a snail, and about 10 plants. I would like to go filterless, is that possible with this plant to animal ratio?

Beautiful tank! I don't think I would be comfortable with fish in a filter free tank unless it looked like a jungle, to be honest. Also, those who go filterless usually keep their tanks very understocked, and you are closer to fully stocked, between the 4 fish & the mystery snail.

I look forward to reading the ideas of other, more seasoned aquarium keepers!

It's not a mystery...snails are the BEST!
