  2. One Betta, One Apple Snail, 3gal

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hello! I recently go a betta who is honestly not the brightest fish I've ever had. He is a strange eater who takes floating pellets and spits them onto the bottom of the tank and then proceeds to make a mushy mess over the span of a few hours. It's really quite something. So I thought...
  3. Need help with snails

    Other Fish
    Hi, My 5.5 gallon is occupied by one betta and many many apple snail babies. The amount of waste the snails are producing is out of control (and so are they tbh) and I think that the bad water quality gave my betta popeye. He is now in a separate tank until I figure out what to do with the...
  4. 10 gallon tank question

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hello! I want to get a ten gallon tank, and I was wondering, would a 10gal be too heavy for my dresser? It is old and made of real wood, quite sturdy. I can sit on it without a problem. I am considering getting one and moving my butterfly betta, bloom, into it, and maybe getting him some small...

  6. Apple Snail Help: Does my apple snail have mantle collaspe?! Please Help!!

    Finless Friends
    I've had my apple snail since Black Friday this year. I recently moved him to a 125 gallon with 2 ghost shrimp, and 5 fancy guppy. He was doing fine the first 4 days but now he has been moving sluggishly and exiting his shell in an awkward way. He is still eating and every now and then will...
  7. Betta bothering apple snail

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I just introduced an apple snail to my 6gal tank with a male betta yesterday. So far the snail seems to be under frequent harassment of the betta. Is it possible that the betta eventually grow bored of the snail?
  8. Considering Fluval Spec III

    Betta Fish Bowls, Habitats, and Accessories
    Hi all! I've had my Betta fish for about a month now. He's a cellophane butterfly veiltail and I house him in a headed 1 gallon bowl. He seems quite content with it and is crazy active! I just got some birthday money from relatives and I was thinking about getting a Fluval Spec III. I've always...
  9. Um, Snail Help? Please?

    Betta Fish Diseases and Emergencies
    I have an apple snail that seems to have gotten sick. I had a young blue mystery snail that ended up passing away. It seems my Gold Inca snail may have also caught this, but he's still alive. I have quarantined him for now, so that my other snail doesn't get sick as well. I was hoping someone...

  11. Betta Antics

    Betta Chat
    I'm preparing to separate my betta from my apple snail. They used to get along fine, but in the past month or so Bruce (betta) has just seemed to lose patience with my poor snail. I installed a 'Betta Bed' leaf hammock for Bruce yesterday to try to distract him for a while as I get his new tank...
  12. Snail water conditions question

    Other Fish
    Okay, so I'm really badly needing to change Honey's water because it's getting smelly (I know, omg, why did I let it get to a stinky stage?) and I couldn't do it yesterday because I was horribly sick (spent about 10 hours in the bathroom because I didn't know if I was going to throw up or not...
  13. A Mystery Snail Mystery O.o

    Other Fish
    I recently got a black mystery (apple) snail. The same day I got him I also got mondo grass from the same tank. I should have known this was a bad idea but I didn't see any eggs on the plants. I rinsed them and put them in a fishbowl with water and my tetras so I could change the tank water...
  14. Feeding a Mystery Snail.

    Other Fish
    Hi all! About a week ago, I got a mystery snail from petsmart. I originally went in for a Nerite, but one of the pet associates talked me into an "apple snail." As it turns out, I have a black mystery snail (with red/orange-ish spots) with a white shell, although it's kind of thin or something...
  15. Putting a snail in 10 gal. with Honeycomb?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Do you think he will be bothered by it (he rarely flares- not even at his reflection)? He is super sweet, but he has been in that tank by himself for 2 years and i am afraid he will be stressed because something else is in his territory, although he is smaller then most bettas and there is...
  16. Betta and Apple snail?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I just got my snail yesterday and the betta was curious of it and lightly nibbled on the snail to which the snail retracted into its shell. After the betta paid no mind to the snail and would swim fairly closely without any more signs of biting.. until now. I was horrified as i just watched my...
