I bought today 3 apple snails for my aquarium, they are so cute! Then I introduced them with care and watched how Fillet (my betta) would react.
He tried to bite their shells at first (lol!) then when the first decided to come out, he bit his antenna, I got mad lol! we tried to distract him with bloodworms, then my brother kept teasing him with his finger, which somehow I think now he likes to follow naughty fingers inside his aquarium.
Then, after a while he went back and just stared at them, he wouldn't bite anymore, but now he's acting like a drama queen around me, idk if he is jealous of the snails or anything like this, buuut
This snail, went inside his skull and now is on the inside top of it, when he went, half way, inside his house, he kept staring at the ceiling and now he's acting all emo, staying most of the time at the top and avoiding getting near them, he keeps trying to get my attention when I go look at the snails, I look at him then he runs off like saying "YOU DUN LOVE ME ANYMORE *swims away*".
But idk, the antenna he bit is a bit torn out but nothing serious, the snail don't seem to bother about it so I just let him there.
Is this kind of behaviour normal?
Oh, now he is staring at the filter again, he stares it for hours sometimes, specially when I turn it on or off.
Look at that evil stare:
