Arowana-proof snails… almost

When I started this tank, I added Nerite snails as part of the algae crew. The was some concerns that they will end up as Arowana snacks as I’ve seen my previous Arowana chomping on something and saw what I thought was snail shell fragments dropping from its mouth. Still I decided to try out the Nerites as they are somewhat larger then the pest snails in my previous tank and have much ticket shells. Unfortunately, I never got to find out as the snails died before the Arowana was introduced. Thinking that my tank conditions were not suitable for snails, I never got new snails till now.
