Silly Bettas! Cucumbers for snails!

LOL. I was feeding my snails some blanched cucumber. I put it at the bottom of the tank, and then put the snails near it. WELL, all of the girls in my betta sorority decided the cucumber is for them. They all started nibbling at it. Eventually they started slowly bringing it to the back of the tank where I couldn't reach it. Just checked it a while ago and half of the cucumber was gone!

Life with Lupus is still a life worth living.

Yup! They are. PIGS! My sorority does the same...they eat all food, they esp. Like algae wafers...and I can't put them in the tank because they eat until they are about to burst and my plecos don't get anything!! Who said they are carnivores?! :)))
