I have no idea what my betta has against snails besides they taste good. I found this in my tank today.....an empty shell



Not to mention that I had at least 10 snail egg sacs hatch in the past week and a half but I have yet to see any baby snails ANYWHERE I guess after snacking on 10 snails my betta has developed a taste for escargot

Me too! I watched my betta eat a tiny baby ramshorn yesterday. He immediately spat it out and then swam off on his merry way. But let me drop a pea in for the otos and he's all over it. We're going to have a serious talk today...

Be careful with the betta eating snails ... yours seems to have figured out how to empty the shell, but a piece of broken shell in his stomach won't be a good thing for sure.

I wonder if he grabs the snail and shakes it like a puffer?

My betta had a thing against grown snails. I bought a blue mystery snail for my tank and my betta ate all its feelers off and kept tormenting it.. I took the snail out and into it's own little home, but after that weekend it died. I probably only had it for about two or three weeks.

I will never forget the smell...

It's funny though, I went ahead and got cories later on, and my betta doesn't mind them at all... I was super prepared though, I got a divider just incase, but nothing bad has happened and I've had them for almost a month now.

I have seen him eat a small ramshorn and immediately spit it back out. This latest one I did not see him attack so I am not sure how he got it out of the shell

That is my most abiding memory of the last mystery snail to live with us. I have never smelt anything that bad.
