View Full Version : Nerite Snails with Bettas?

02-09-2011, 07:19 PM
I'm thinking of getting either an Olive Nerite Snail or a Zebra Nerite Snail for my 5 gallon Betta aquarium. Would the Betta attack, eat, or pick on the snail? Has anyone kept these two together, and if so how did they behave towards each other?

I've kept a betta with a snail, no problem at all.

I have a zebra nerite with my Betta Alabaster and also cherry shrimp in a 6 gallon. Everybody thrives.

I have an apple snail with my betta. When the snail was first introduced, the betta attacked it, but he figured out pretty quickly that the snail was too well protected to be bothered with.
