Perfect, just found out tomorrow i will be getting my single, (most likely Zebra) Nerite snail from petco. On friday i have to go somewhere for a couple days (i already have somebody to feed the betta, and the snail has a good amount of algae) but do you think i should hold off getting the snail until monday so i see how they are with each other? Honeycomb is way smaller then most bettas, so a 10 gallon is pretty big, so i am hoping the snail with have enough room just in case it gets picked on. I am just concerned that if it does get picked on and dies, my water could foul up very quickly and i wouldn't be there to change it.


thoughts, ideas?

Thanks, everybody has been a gigantic help!

also my tank only has 6 silk plants in there for decoration(i took out the bridge because it was rough and tore Honeycombs fins). Should i but another decoration so the Nerite snail can have a place to hide if he needs to? if i do buy a decoration, do i just was it off before adding it? Do snails acclimate just like fish?

I'd wait until Monday if I were you, just in case. ;)

They don't really hide like bettas do, snails just get on with it and explore. lol If they need to hide they have their shell. ;)

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)
