Help! My betta hates my mystery snail
My betta always seemed so gentle mannered compared to other betas. I've never seen him flare, not once. He was in a community tank when I bought him and he seemed to get along great with tank mates so when I upgraded to a 10 gallon tank, I decided to start small with a mystery snail. My snail seemed so shy at first so I put an algae wafer in to see if he'd come out. While he was making his way out my betta starting ripping the algae Wafer to pieces and eating it. I took it out after a while because I didn't want him to over eat but that was it, once he thought the snail was food he just continued to torture him. I took the snail out and put him in another tank to eat for a day and he was fine, moving all over but when I put him back in the tank today, my betta started at him again and now he won't come out. I bought a divider for the tank but I'm just annoyed because from what I've heard, betas are fine with snails, am I wrong? I was going to get a few other fish but now I'm hesitant because I feel like he'll just torture them too! Help!
