I've had Betta fish before, in jars, aquariums, other fish communities. I've found they best get along with plecos, swordtails, mollies and some even will get along well with guppies. Never before have I had one like snails. I have the Betta in a small aquarium...maybe a 1 gallon? I put a snail in there and he's been infatuated ever since. Is that normal for a Betta to sit next to a snail...all day? The fish will find the algae flakes and sit and watch the snail eat the algae. Just does not seem normal to me... Here's a picture of the snail, I'll try and get one of the two together. They've been together now about 3 months. The snail is a bluish color and is bigger than the Betta. (The reason for me choosing the Betta is because he was smaller than a gold dollar! ) If anyone can give me info on the snail, it's appreciated! Especially if it's giving off "love" pheromones. Any idea what that tube is that's coming out of it's front? Looks like a snorkel when it's fully extended.
