Thank you. My instincts were telling me that would be the case, but LFS told me otherwise. They mean well, but I’ll make sure to check with y’all next time BEFORE I get tank mates. I’m going to bring these two Otto back on Tuesday when they open after the holiday. Is there anything that I can do to make them more comfortable for now??I wouldn't risk it will 2 Otos,
It's better to buy and add the oto first then betta so they can settle in first.
I tried mystery’s with this betta before. He did nip their antenna so I had to rehome them. I know that trapdoor snails have much smaller, and thus less tempting for a betta, antenna than mystery snails. Also I just find nerite snails to be well boring, and then never cleaned my plants.Pretty much all snails are fine for bettas. I have kepts mysteries and nerites with my bettas. My current betta loves to impersonate his nerite and taught himself to bury himself in the botanical substrate like the snail does. I've never had issues with antenna nipping, though some bettas will do this to mysteries or other species with long antenna, I've heard
