I found a way to FEED SNAILS WITHOUT A MESS! xD

Hehe thought I would share.. I bought a cave called a "moon rock" from walmart. It glows in the dark... Well I give my nerite snails algae wafers, which make an awful mess in the gravel... Well I just put the algae wafers in this and they go right for it! So now instead of siphoning A LOT, I can just remove the cave and clean it out :D I like this one because it doesn't like REALLY artificial and tacky.

Your betta doesn't go in the cave? Mine will steal any food, the piggies.

I have that same cave! I don't put food in it for my snail (I take him out and feed him separately) but somehow my snail LOVES it! He's always in there. It's pretty awesome, because it means that most of his poop ends up in there, too! My betta on the other hand has never shown any interest in it.

I just tried... My camera showed the cave on the screen but once the pic was taken, it was completely black -_-
