pogthefish,We are going to give the snail another shot as he seems more active lately I'm hoping the third time around will work out. You know what they say "Third times a charm".

All went well with trial number three!! The two are successfully living together. Armani seems to have nipped off some of the snails tentacle/antennae thingys but other than that they are living peacefully together.

For 2.5 gall it also better to do 100% on weekly basis.

okay so as you know I put the snail back and it was a success ( or so I thought) turns out my little Armani is more aggressive than I thought he seemed to find it amusing to bite of the poor snails tentacles( ouch! ) and he started to show signs of tail rot ( again! ) so the once again the snail was removed and put in a large glass vase and Armani healed up fine. Now the vase we had him in wasn't one we would never use again soooo we got him a little half gallon glass fish bowl and put some gravel and a large plant in it and I planned to keep until he died. Well the day I got his bowl and a little while after I had set him up in it he wasn't moving ( he was in his shell though) but I picked him up to make sure he was fine weeeeelll I'll just say this quickly I dropped him, his shell broke and he died...Rest in peace little guy sorry for dropping you. So I had this fish bowl with a plant and gravel so I thought what the heck I'll get another betta so I did and I now own Georgio ( my first betta's name is Armani get it?) a very pretty DT male. So there is how my adventure with a snail and Armani's illness ( He is healthy now knock on wood ) and I will never EVER pair a Betta and a snail again. Thanks for all your replies. Oh and feel free to reply to this I just don't need anymore medical fish advice or snail advice lol.
