I know experts on this forum say to not buy plants from Petco and other large chain pet stores like it, but....I bought a new anacharis plant from Petco yesterday. Theres nothing wrong with the plant, but as I was cleaning my tank and putting the new anacharis into place just now and I noticed a little snail had hitched a ride from the store onto my plant! I don't know if it's okay for him to be in the same tank as my betta (a 3 gallon tank with a few other plants and a filter system), if I should just kill him, or release him some where outside. I really don't want to kill him and I would feel perfectly fine if he was in my fish's tank, but I just want to know if there would be any repercussions to it?
Maybe I'm being overly sensitive about a tiny, little sail but I just can't bring myself to harm him. :(
I went back to cleaning my tank and discovered about 6 more snails! Mostly babies, would this be bad?
And I think they might be trumpet snails? They are tiny, dark brown with speckles of lighter brown.
