I just got a small, maybe half inch sized mystery snail from the store, He is moving around but my betta fish keeps staring at him and following him around. His antennas even touched my betta's face and he didn't nip at them then, but my snail is in his shell and my betta seemed to try to nip at him. I don't want my snail to be constantly harassed but is this just normal since he is new?
My fish doesnt follow him around constantly but does stop and watch him for a few seconds here and there. He doesnt flare or ram him but seems more scared/curious.
My snail is scared now cause of my mean betta! =(
Will he stop follwing him and get used to him or should I just bag the idea and bring the snail back, I dont want him to get hurt.
