can you put (mystery snail) apple snail in a 5 gallon with a betta? i just got the tank so its not cycled,its been up and running 3 days and only today i had to do my first water change 50 percent. its a gravel tank got alot of frogsbit on the top,a marimo ball, some java moss and a couple rocks and a terracotta pot.

i read 2.5 gallon for betta and 2.5 for 1 snail so the 2 will be ok in a 5 gallon i hope,im just wondering if the snail can go in an un cycled tank and will it mean ill have to do a water change every day untill its cycled? a 25 each day would be ok? or a 50 every 2 days?

It's ok if you do some water changes.
Another question:can apple snails live with a betta in an acidic condition?I'm afraid the snail's shell will corode.

Snails need calcium so I would not recommend them in soft water. In a 5 gallon you need more than 50 percent I would recommend 1 100 percent or 1 100 and a 50 percent.

I put an apple snail in a 5 gallon with my giant betta and my betta just pecked at it every chance he got so I put the snail in with my goldfish. I got an african dwarf frog though and my betta could care less about him! I guess it depends on your betta.

Giant Bettas are more of a ten gallon fish. You must have a big tank for that goldfish.

It's a temporary home for my giant, waiting for payday to get a 10 gallon. I just saw him in that tiny cup at the pet store and had to do something. I felt terrible! And he isn't the kind of betta people would go for so I knew if I didn't get him nobody else would and he would die there.
