O.O Wow! That's impressive... not for the snail of course. XD

Three out of four of mine hunt and eat pond snails. Not all the time. I'm not even sure what the criteria is. I saw Wraith trying to eat a snail as big as his head. It was out of the shell. I've seen Logan hunt small snails, usually at night. No snail has ever survived in Kilo's tank. Tango is the only one who doesn't eat them. I think they do it the same way my puffer does. He grabs the snail by the body and sucks it right out of it's shell.

My juveniles will peck at snails but for the most part ignore them.

Weird snail thing:
One time I got up and I was still half asleep and I saw an almond leaf that was stuck to the side of one of my betta jars and I thought it was a giant snail out to take over the world (O.o).
