  4. Tiny snails - what now?! Help please.

    Planted Betta Tanks
    Two days ago I decided to go buy a new plant for my betta boy. He absolutely loves it and there already is a huge bubble nest around it. Yesterday, I noticed that he was swimming rapidly and sort of flaring around one spot, as if observing something in a rather predator manner? Maybe I'm wrong...
  5. Betta bit antennas off of my snails!!! Help?!

    Meet the Betta Keepers
    I know it's a long read, but I didn't want to exclude anything that may help you in solving my dilemma with me! My Betta Legolas (yeah I have a Lord of the Rings theme) has been thriving for 8 months. I had him in a way too small 1.5 gal bowl for the longest time, and I decided I wanted to...
  6. Betta Too Aggressive for Snails?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have two fish. The first one, the one I consider non-aggressive and "clean" Yukine, and the second, his polar opposite Niji. Back in December, I purchased two black mystery snails. One of them went into Yukine's tank the other went into Niji's. The main reason why I bought them was because...
  7. Snails

    Finless Friends
    Today I went to the pet store in my local area ( a private reputable pet store not a national chain) and told them I have a male betta and that he is in a 2.5 gallon aquarium (not a bowl) and that I was wondering if there was anything that could live in this tank with him as a community. They...
  8. My Bettas keep eating my snails algae wafers

    Betta Fish Care
    I got 2 cute Nerite snails named Berry and Garry. I dropped in an algae wafer in each side (They are on each side of my divided 10gallon) But I noticed my Bettas started to go for the wafers. I watched them for a bit and realized they were picking at it and was eating the wafers and the snails...
  9. Can Nerite Snails have some AQ salt in the tank?

    Betta Fish Care
    So I have a 10gallon divided tank with 2 make Bettas. One of their tails looks "ripped". Someone said it was fin nipping and I was to add some AQ salt into the tank. I thought this was good as I was going to PetCo tomorrow to get some Nerite Snails. First question: Will the salt affect the...
  10. Can I put one nerite snail on each side of my divided 10gallon?

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    I have a divided 10gallon tank with a male betta on each side. There is a lot of brown algae and I read that Nerite snails eat brown algae. I am aware that they won't live just off of the algae of course. Could I add one Nerite snail on each side? Will my Bettas mind?
  11. Help meeee. It's the beginning of the snail-pocalypse.

    Planted Betta Tanks
    My betta kept relapsing on his fin rot, so I went out today to buy him some plants to help keep the water parameters stable. Dumb me though did not ask the LFS worker how I should introduce the plant to my 10 gal tank. I did not quarantine the water wisteria and Monty carlo, or check for snail...
  12. ISO: Purple/Magenta Mystery Snail

    Betta Fish Marketplace
    Hello! I am looking for a purple/pink/magenta mystery snail. Does anyone have one available, or does anyone have breedings planned? I've searched all of the local fish stores to no avail, and the handful available on aquabid are being sold in multiples, which won't do since my tank is only five...

    Betta Fish Care
    I have a rose petal betta and two zebra snails. I recently just started putting in algae wafers in the tank for supplemental food. I put the wafer in once a week.

  18. Feeding

    Betta Fish Care
    After feeding, I might put a straw in his tank and drop a little pellet down to my snail. Is that ok? My fish never misses a pellet unless his filter is on, and I was worried about the snail dying.
  19. Shrimp and snails

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    So, I am going to be naturally planting my fish tank in about a week. It is a sixty gallon divided into 4 sections. Initially, planting will be a bit sparse, to allow things to grow in. I'm looking for shrimp that my bettas will leave alone and snails that won't overpopulate overnight. The four...
  20. Ramshorn snails - advice please!

    Betta Fish Compatibility
    Hi, I have been looking into getting snails, ramshorn specifically, and figured one might be a nice companion to my bettas in a 10g tank (I have 2 10g with 2 bettas each), which has a lot of live plants and I do plan on adding more for a heavily planted tank. I see that they do reproduce a...
