I have a male betta in a 23 gal
tank with a few nerites, 3 african dwarf frogs and two bristle nose plecos. Thankfully they all get along without aggression. That I know of. Just yesterday and once a couple of months ago, I found an empty nerite shell. Don't know if the snail died first and got sucked out or if the betta (or BN's) killed it. Has anyone else ever had a betta eat a nerite? Or was it the BN?
To me, the BN's are the best algae eaters. Once I had a 10 gal
that was full of algae and the BN cleaned it up in less than 2 days. Of course a 10 gal
is too small for a BN, but I just put him in there for housekeeping! But the nerites run a close second!
55 gal with 3 fancy goldfish. 2 goldies in QT, 23 flatback hex tank with betta, 3 ADF's, 2 BN's and nerite snails, 60 gal community tank: 4 angels, rainbow shark, raphael cat, apple snails,etc.
