Figment the piggy....

So my HMPK Figment has decided he has a taste for algae waffers. He guards them and flares at the snails when they come too close to "his" food . He stuffs himself and I don't know what to do. I don't have enough food in the tank not to supplement the snails diet. I've tried distracting him while the waffer sinks and he still finds it. I also tried feeding the snails lettuce but they didn't touch it. Any suggestions?

Oh, and I kept reading how much snails pooped before I got my two, holy cow you guys weren't kidding. I'm going to get a siphon tomorrow cuz the poo has gotten out of control.

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

It is easier to remove the snails into a glass jar or bowl for feeding time then plop them back in. ^^

yep, although I killed one of my snails by doing that, I kinda dropped it and it fell on the hard edge of my table =(

That's me on the photo alright.

That made me laugh because I have a dog that LOVES the chinchilla food and god forbid I feed the chinchilla her food and not give him some of it too. He also loves betta pellets

Figment as in the purple dragon??

Your dog reminds me of my own pup. He gets in soo close when I'm feeding brine shrimp his head is literally infront of the tank. After the boys get their fill Aki gets mad and flares until Yugi walks away. Kai follows him until hes out of sight. XD
