I got a blue ramshorn snail. I had read up on compatibility. Everywhere I read states it depends on the betta. My betta is playful and never flared at all. I thought he would be fine. I put my beautiful new snail in with my supposedly docile betta. Two nights later my snail was eaten. The betta ate the whole flesh part and left the shell floating. The snail has left eggs already. (The snail was in the tank for a week as my betta was sick in another tank) I know the betta will eat most of the eggs, but I am hoping to get a few snails and put them in their own tank. They are such beautiful creatures and interesting to watch.
I don't know why I got attached to the little snail so fast. I know that it's in the fish's nature to do what he did. I just feel so mad at the fish. It's almost like I wish I could get a new betta. I feel so silly being attached to these tiny creatures.
