Bettas eat snails?
I am beginning to question my Betta's ability to live with anything. I have a few, 21, baby snails that came from plants (6 from a live bearer) and am raising them to give them to some of my friends who have ponds and aquariums.
Now, D.W. (the devil Betta) lived peacefully with a nerite and a golden apple snail... until today. If i hadn't seen him do this, I would have never guessed. My baby snails have been dis-appearing. I thought maybe they were hiding or whatever, but no. I watched him swim down and gulp up a baby in one bite!
He then proceeded to go to our golden apple snail and ram him. The snail seemed indifferent, just going along. A few minutes later the snail dropped to the bottom. Now he normally did this so i didn't think much of it. I go back an hour later and the snail is dead with a broken shell near his foot!
D.W. is in a 10g heated, filtered, planted tank. Is it possible he is just a very angry fish?
If Magic and Lasers can't fix it... Try Duct Tape and Bacon
