I was trying to move a baby ramshorn snail out of my betta's 10 gallon when I accidentally squished the snail. Oops. I panicked and let go with the tongs and my male immediate swam over and gulped the whole thing down.
So now I get to wait and watch to see if it does him any harm. I'm hoping it's okay because the shell was so thin that lifting it with tweezers was too much force. Hopefully Lucky chewed before swallowing the snail down!
Anyone else had their betta eat a whole snail? If so, were they okay? If this is no big deal, I may have found a solution to my ramshorn population explosion. Lucky is currently surfing around the front of the tank, hoping I smoosh another one for him.
