I've been looking at trying to add some larger snails, like an apple snail, to my wife's betta tank, and that led me to wondering if that large of a snail would survive with my oscar... What do you guys think? If I managed to get my hands on some extra large snails, would they survive, or would he just harass them to death?

I think they'd become food pretty quickly but I guess you won't know unless you try. Oscar has a big mouth-it'd have to be one hell of a snail!

Bad idea imo. If Oscar swallows the snails, he will have trouble passing the shell. High risk of intestinal blockage


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
