Betta & snail fighting...

For the past couple days I saw my betta attacking mystery snail few times. Is this normal behavior? They live together in a 2g tank for about a week now.

Sometimes bettas will be ok with a tank mate and then not be ok with it. Watch them and if he won't leave the snail alone then you'll need to rehome one of them.

Ya its normal or depends on their attitude, like mine she ate her pond snail buddy. But he was a munchy size anyways. All of my bettas have nipped or tossed around a snail. No harm done to the bigger ones.
