Tank Mate Fails lol

Amazon is in his nicely decorated 5 gallon tank and I decided to give him friends...

Ghost Shrimp:
Never had these guys before, but I've heard that bettas eat them so I got 3 and named them Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner (I didn't wanna get attached.. lol).

Well Amazon ate Breakfast and Dinner's eating Lunch (who died for some reason?). Fail! But now, Dinner's been doing fantastic. Win?

Mystery Snail:
I got the mystery snail to help control the algae. Naturally, I named him Gary after the snail in Spongebob. Amazon must be terrorizing because he's gone inside the cave..and while he's been cleaning the algae in there quite well, I kind of needed him for the rest of the tank? Fail. lol

i think dastans like full barged one of my three mystery snails (I would like to pull them out dry them and number their shells so i can name them) cause he had scale damage above his eyes and one snails got like a shattered spoton his shell lol

I did see one of the snails slide along the bottom of the tanks bash into the glass wall then cruise up the side that was funny
