I've been wanting to add a snail to one of my two betta tanks, but couldn't decide which kind of snail I wanted. I want a ramshorn, but I only want one.
I considered getting a nerite, but I don't really like the looks of them and I've read that they're picky eaters.
I also considered getting a mystery snail, but they get pretty big.
If I can find someone who would be willing to sell me one (pink
) ramshorn, could I quarantine it for a while to make sure it doesn't reproduce? If it did, I could squish the eggs, then put the snail in my tank knowing that it wouldn't reproduce after that? Is that how it works or am I crazy?
If that is how it works, how long would I need to quarantine it to be sure it wouldn't reproduce?
I've read about what to feed ramshorns, but any tips there? Basically tell me everything you know about ramshorn care so I can make sure this is the right decision before trying to find someone who will sell me one.
Oh! And I know that there's no guarantee that snails and bettas will get along, but I would like to give it a try. If one betta doesn't like him, maybe the other one will.
