. . . otherwise known as “scavenge around, guys” day, and a scarlet badis just tried to eat a half-grown ramshorn snail. Went kinda like this:
Badis: Nip!
Snail: Wham! (closes up instantly, drops)
Badis: I did not think this through, as it also starts to drop before managing to let go.
It’s the antennae. They look like wiggly little snacks. I dropped live blackworms in front of this same badis and it just stared as they fell to the bottom of the tank. But a snail, now, that’s good eating!

Wow! This is hilarious

One of my bettas will no joke ignore every type of food I put in, but then I'll see him eating it off the filter intake or even just the bottom of the tank

Probably just grazing for biofilm!

They figured out the blackworms. I saw one with a worm end sticking out of its mouth. Hope it’s not going to be too much to get down.
