Maybe.. If I get them from you, can you add just 1? I don't like snails very much but I want to start with 1 for now... Sorry, but thanks for the more than 1 snail deal! :)

I'm going to warn you right now that if you have betta girls and cories, you may find it next to impossible to feed the cories. :( The problem is those cute little things eat really slow and betta girls are gluttons. They swoop in and steal everything. Ask Silverfang. As for me, I had to remove my cories after two days because my girls ate everything I tried to feed the cories and bloated up like ping-pong balls with fins.

Bioload-wise, if the tank is cycled, you'll be fine.

Thank you for the warning!! :) I have an idea, can I cup the females to feed them? That way, everyone can get a chance to eat.

Yup, you sure can, if you don't mind doing that every time you feed them. Also, as long as it doesn't stress them out.

Oh wait. Did you mean cup the girls when you feed the girls or when you feed the cories? If you cup the girls when you feed the cories, they may be in their cups for a while. It can take cories all night to eat.

The cories can take all night..? Can't I bury it in the sand or something?? :l What about cupping the females first, then I bury the cories' food in the sand, feed females, and then let them go?

You can try it and see if that works or not but I don't know. Silverfang has tried just about everything she can think of to feed her cories. She buried the wafers in the sand, put the wafers under the filter flow, fed them at night, fed them in the plants . . . betta girls are gluttons.
