Assassin snails live up to their name haha, They've been reported to eat other snails and sometimes shrimp If they get too hungry. (They're actually used to keep other snail populations down.) They're scavengers and carnivors so they eat anything really. Bloodworms, pellets. They should find enough in your tank to eat, if not you can feed them shrimp pellets.
They're compatible with most fish except loaches, and cichlids.
