snail from lake

Postby vank0055 » Mon Jun 24, 2013 12:07 pm

I really like snails and I found a snail at our cabin from a lake in Minnesota. Is it ok to put lake snails in with your betta fish?

Hi!

Typically, snails do make great tank mates for Bettas but, just make sure that the snail is a fresh water snail.

I've found that my betta's tend to get along fine with snails (though my second male, Prism, would flare his little head off whenever he remembered that he had a snail tankmate), but like Adam said up there you want to make sure it's freshwater. And then you also want to be positive that (1) it's a snail you want in the tank and that it's not going to reproduce like crazy (I've only had apple/mystery and nerite myself) and (2) it's not carrying any diseases with it. Quarantine before you stick it in with your betta if you're going to pull it out of the wild, just like you would do with a plant you found :)

Yes, I agree! You definitely want to quarantine the snail before you put it with your Betta:) Anytime you get new fish/tank mates, they should be quarantined before you place them in an already established aquarium.

A snail would be fine, but watch one from a lake. Keep it separate to make sure it isn't harboring disease...I personally would just buy one from a pet store.
