Bad fishy!

So, I bought a gold Mystery Snail today, and once I put it in Sir Lefty's tank, he wouldn't stop attacking it. So I had to switch him into Annabeard's Sterilite, and switch Annabeard into his old tank. I decided to divide the tank I put her in, so now I have space for yet another Betta. Funny how things work out, right? At least I didn't have to downgrade Sir Lefty. He went into another 5 gallon container, which is nice. He seems a bit miffed, though. He's like "HUMPH. No more filter current to play in!" Well, that's what you get for being an Attack Fish!

I am worried about my snail. He hasn't come out of his shell since he was last attacked (about 30 minutes ago). I hope he's okay. Right now I have him alone on his own side of the divided tank, just so he doesn't have to deal with Annabeard's curiosity if he comes out of his shell. I also have a blanched lettuce leaf waiting for him. Do you think he'll be okay?

My snail, who I named "Crunchy", seems to be coming out of his shell slowly, but surely. I'm glad.

Well, all of my fish that I tried Crunchy with decided to attack him. I have 2 fish I could still try him with, but I decided to put him in his own 1 gallon tank. I don't want to stress him further. It's unheated, but my room temperature is around 72* most days, which is the lowest recommended temp for them. I have him sitting next to my computer chair on my side table. He only has one fake plant right now, but I hope to get him some real ones in the future.

I think that, besides the time my snail tried to do a cannonball onto sven's head, he's pretty much just considered him part of the scenery, lol

Well, none of my fish seemed to like him. So I put him in his own peaceful tank. He's been through he** today.

Poor little snail! lol I'm sure he'll be fine in his one gallon. Once he feels safe, he'll probably be all over the place. :)
