but they're oogly... I went and bought 4 big snails from my pet store last night. They are not the assassin snails that I was looking for (I don't think) but I am hopeful they might help. ...Shortly after putting one in, though, I saw one of the smaller annoying snails hitching a ride on the new bigger snail's back... thaaaaat was lovely...
On the plus side, Apache (who is solo in a 5 gallon) finds the new snail soooo interesting. He was putting his head IN the shell when the snail was hiding like "hellloooooo in theeerreee!" He looks like a puppy dog, cocking his head to the side to examine this weird creature. :P

Do you keep all your fish together or something because you dont specify where your fish are or live. I dont mean to be rude.

I keep my bettas separate but in this thread I'm talking about my 10 gallon community tank.. I guess I should update my signature and specify what's in my tanks.

I want a snail infestation! I have every thing worms, bloodworms, springtails, but no snails! My betta and crayfish probably killed them all.

If you have a friend with pet pufferfish, they consider them a delicacy. Maybe my bettas are just abnormal, but they eat soft shell snails with great vigor and noproblems over the years.

Hmm, I wonder if my betta is responsible for clearing out most of the snails in one of my tanks? The 10 gallon with the betta is ALMOST snail free (a few big guys hanging out) but the other 10 gallon without a betta is.. infested.... (guess my dwarf gourami is not eating as many as I hoped. :/)
