I had about 6 to 8 ramshorn snails in my tank when I introduced my betta after cycling the tank. 4 of them were bigger than the head of a pin and the rest were tiny specs on the glass. I saw him eat one and immediately spit it out the very first time he was in his new home. Now all I can see are shells lying at the bottom.
Can betta's suck the snail from their shell? I know they can't crush them but can they get them out?
p.s my pond snail survived because he is about 3mm long and too big for my betta to attempt to eat it.
