    I am a horrible fish mom. I go to feed the betta and snail in the morning only to find that the snails antennae were nipped off. I feel so guilty. I know that they will grow back in time but still... Added the snail to a cup and trying to find a new tank on craigslist. I thought the snail died when I added him to the cup. I almost cried. Is there any way I could add the snail back to the betta tank without him acting hostile to it again? There were plants and caves where the snail could hide but that still got him. What do I do?

    If he attacked once it'll probably happen again. Do you have a nice vase big enough for the snail to live in?

    Not at the moment. I might have one by the end of the week but I dont know what to do in the meantime.

    Place the snail in a glass or something like Tupperware for now.
