Adding first tank mate: Mystery Snail
Hey hey hey. I never added a tank mate before and I can really only have a snail in my 5 gallon. I was just wondering: How do I add the snail into my betta tank? Do you acclimate snails? Do you put them in isolation first? How do you know if it gets sick? Do bettas ever attack them?
I am rather partial to the golden apple snails at PetSmart that they are calling mystery snails. What would be good food for them? Better yet, how do I stop my betta from eating the snail food? I'd appreciate it if anyone could answer my questions and let me know of anything important I haven't thought of yet.
