I watched the video I made (currently uploading to youtube)
he doesn't appear to be eating.
hes showing off his fins and only pecks twice or three times in this video(original is almost 30 mins long)
and when Spike turns to the camera he begins to flare and act all mean.

sometime later, the snail moves his body out a little bit more in an attempt to dig further into the sand. At which(i believe) Spike takes it as a threat(like flaring) and begins to flare. I don't remember seeing him strike at the snail. But i will review the video.

I am not sure what to make of this. I feel like he is being mean. But at the same time i feel like Spike is making sure the snail knows his place. just like Spike has done to the heater and any decor that looks like a fish.

I think that is Spike starts getting violent with the snail I may just remove the snail to keep him from getting hurt.

looks like green hairy algae to me(i have had the same problem). Is your tank in direct sunlight? If not, how long do you keep your light on during the day?

crawdads?crayfish?I dont think so... they will tear up your bettas pretty fins :( shrimps... you will need an amano shrimp :) but if your ettas attacks it.. I've found shrimp to be fairly frail things when attacked.

Oh an I just remember the mystery snail thing... apprently they need a period of time in the year when the water freezes over for hibernation or something like that...
