My nerite eats on the algae tabs and has left all of my plants alone. Whether or not they eat the tabs is a toss up some will some won't but most of them will go for blanched zucchini. Also a suggestion that has started popping up a lot is to put a few aquarium safe rocks in a thing of treated water in a window sill to grow algae and then just rotate them in and out of the tank so the snail has something to eat. What temp does your tank stay at? Unless you can keep a constant temp of somewhere in the mid upper 70's and at a steady temp, not going up and down by more than maybe a degree or two, I would add a small heater to help make your betta a very happy camper.
Never explain - your friends do not need it and your enemies will not believe you anyway.
Between two evils, I always pick the one I never tried before.
