what will they eat

    I have a betta in a 10 gal tank with 3 ramhorn snails. They were initially in with a goldfish and ate leftover food. Now with the betta there is no leftover food for them. What should I feed them that wont make the tank messy???

    hey red!
    i feed my snails veggies, they don't cloud water and can be kept in water for a couple days with out worry of ammonia.you can blanch them so they sink on their own, use a clip, or a skewer and place one end of the skewer under the gravel or decor.
    i hear that all veggies can be used EXCEPT for corn. i use cucumber and lettuce, and zucchini, it's great for snails due to their calcium.and from what i hear betta don't care for the healthy veggies and leave it to the snails, remember to remove or replace in 2-3 days.

    Why didnt I think of that. I have snails in my other tanks and feed cucumbers but was not sure if I could do it with a betta in the tank. This is my first betta and I think he already took out one of the snails.

    Thanks much
