two of my nitrite snails LOVE the wafers. But my third snail cannot get to the wafer fast enough.. my betta EATS it. x_x and then he gets really bloated. what else would work for food for the snails and the fish wont eat?

I remove Rowan to supplement his diet with one algae wafer a week. Tycho tries to eat the wafer otherwise.

In other news, I got a nerite snail for Esmeralda's tank, because it's about a week behind Tycho's tank, so we've got algae! I thought it might be dead when I brought it home, because it didn't move in acclimation, so I cupped it... and it's clearly a ninja snail, because I'd look over every five minutes and it was in a different spot in the cup. I've either got a poltergeist, or a ninja snail. So, placed it in the tank after a bit more acclimation... Esmeralda knocked it off the driftwood. So I set it gently on the bottom... come back five minutes later, and it's moved, but it rolled over. Now it's on the giant fake anubias plant, just so I can see if it latches on and moves...

I either have no luck, or a fish bully. Ugh.

My nerite snails will eat cooked frozen green beans, peas, and cauliflower. They have never eaten any leafy vegetables though. I gave up on lettuce and spinach.
