Betta didnt work. THey ignored the snails.

Shrimps were too fast for them. Got out of the way even before they are near.

Otherwise the female betta fit in with the rest of the fishes

Anyway, once the bettas removed the snails I will take them out of the main tank.

Kuhli loach, according to many websites wont disturb the shrimps. THe setback however is that Kuhli's teeth isnt made for eating snails so some people says that they dont eat snails at all. And kuhli dislike salt in water. With so much salt in it already, I doubt they can survive.
i doubt any betta will prefer snails over shrimps...
i guess in no time, ur betta will chase aft ur shrimps lehz. be careful.

Y not try doing up a snail trap?



just be careful when removing the snails, some fish or shrimps may trap inside too.
