    Velvet was sassy from day one. 10 minutes into acclimating he was flaring at me from inside his cup. For a couple days he continued to flare at me however that's all but stopped. Whenever I do go near the tank he comes from his positions in his tank to where I am and stays there until I walk...

    Sorry for always posting when things go wrong. :oops: So, I bought 3 Nerite Snails about a month ago and stuck them in my cycled 5gal single male betta tank (I know that's tapping overstock almost, but I stay on top of the params really well/do spot cleanings of the snail waste! All safe!). A...

    Hi there! I was wondering if you guys could tell me how healthy the nerite snails at my local PS are. I was going to get one for my betta Fred Astaire, but I want to make sure they're ok to get or should I get them elsewhere and if so where? I do have a picture, and I observed them for a few...

    So...funny story...I decided to get a couple tank mates for my new betta and had decided on a nerite snail, Neddard (I just started watching Game of Thrones) and a few ghost shrimp, all collectively named Charlie. When I got home, I noticed a tiny hitch hiker in with my shrimp, googled the...

    So I got a Nerite Snail as a tankmate to my Betta. But this nerite doesn't seem to want to move. He is just sitting where I left him without even attaching to the surface. But I did check that he's alive. He shut his trapdoor so fast and hard that my nail got stuck in it... Any suggestions...
  6. Betta Fish Care
    Backstory: about 3 weeks ago, I acquired a small nerite snail without much noticed. Because I feared he could have been sick or have some bacteria on him (due to the conditions he was kept in before), I put him in a QT tank for the last 3 weeks. Okay tonight (3 weeks later), I attempted to add...

    Vern's been chugging around the bottom of the tank for the past couple days, but then yesterday I found him upside down on the bottom. I turned him over and he crawled off, seeming fine. then this morning he was on his shell again. I turned him over. He latched onto a marble and perched there...

    So I've had this new little Nerite snail named Vern for about a week. When i first put him in the tank, he meandered around the bottom a little bit (freaking Franky out lookin like a moving rock haha), but then he made his way over to the front right corner of the tank and crawled up onto the...

    I have a baby nerite that I think would look great in my new 5.5. I'm just worried he'll "escape" in search of a larger body of water. I know nerites are notorious for escaping. The snail is fine in my 10, otherwise. :-)

    I seem to have changed my mind again about the tank mates I would like for my betta. I had initially wanted harlequin rasbora, but that was before I learned that Petsmart sold Endler's sometimes. I'm still a little iffy about the setup though, so any input would be nice! Info: 10g tall, been up...

    Many months ago, I put my nerite snail (Zippy, for her speed) in a half-gallon bowl for a few hours. She escaped, and crawled halfway across the table. She nearly died without water! We thought she was a goner. I put her back in the 10-gallon and hoped for the best. She lived, but she was never...
  12. Betta Fish Compatibility
    Ok, I'm not 100% sure, but I'm about 90% sure. My female bettas turned out to be excellent snailers- I had a snail overpopulation and then when I added my girls to my tank, I was seeing empty shells and my pond snail numbers were going down. Now I don't know if I have any pond snails, and the...
  13. Betta Fish Compatibility
    I introduced an assassin snail to the tank yesterday. I was worried it might eat my nerite, Zippy, so I took her out and put her in a temporary container. Well, this morning my mom found her a foot away from her bowl, dried up. Why would she leave the bowl? :( She's still alive, as far as I...

    I only just now read that you should only add a nerite snail to your tank if you have algae growing. There has never been any visible algae on my tank. I have had a nerite for several months and have never fed him. Now I'm worried the little guy is starving! Do I need to feed him? :-( Since...

    as title says, one of my nerites has been excessively shy lately. a friend of mine who also keeps fish and nerites came over tonight and glanced at him. she says its not normal... but since ive had him for about 4 months already, i know that hes always been shy, rarely moving too much (at...

    One of my fish in my divided 5 gallon has recently become ill and has open wounds. In addition to my other betta, who is currently fine, I have an olive nerite. I know they live in brackish/salt water as well as fresh, but Im nervous about adding large(r) does of AQ salt to give preventative...
