Yeah I think a Betta a snail would be just fine..I think I might try to introduce the snail to the tank and then find a Betta to introduce later. I just really want to get the poor snail out of the plastic cup is all...but for the while he seems fine in there. I wonder if I should try to place him empty 2 gallon tank for right now, thought to be honest I would rather not since I want to replace rocks and the air stone in there for whatever new occupants it might get. hmm still kind of debating this, hopefully I can find somewhere to put him where he will be happy.

Do you think if I put him in the 2.5g tank for now he should do ok until I can afford to get 5g or 3g lol I am debating over what kind of tank I am going to get next, I just don't want him to get sick from whatever my Betta had. And I kind of wanted to replace the stuff inside the tank with better new stuff that might not have diseases on it, like the gravel and the air stone in there mostly.
ok I just cleaned out the 2.5 with hot water and I put in de colrinator just letting that settle and then I am putting him in, going to try and start looking for a 5g tank either the last week of December or the fist week of January would do it sooner but me and my mom are taking a trip to FL to do a WDW Christmas/Birthday trip should be back in town by the 23rd though so can start looking for tanks then I think. Hopefully he should be ok n the 2.5 for a little while anything better then that tiny little cup I would guess.

Now I realize that they were polluting the tank/jars they were in, so I pulled them out. Three of them are in a jar in the kitchen, to make it easier to feed them. For water, I was thinking at least once a day I would drain most of the water, and fill with RO water (because they are in the kitchen, and far from my supply of dechlor tap water)... Also because they need a higher pH, I'm considering putting half of a conch shell in there.. What do people think of that?

I thought that might be a problem..
Right now the only filtered tank I have is my fry tank, and I don't want to put any snails in there. I think I'll give them to my friend
She's planning to set up a community tank, with filtration and all that good stuff
