My snails basically eat whatevers left over. In which case, that means shrimp, algae wafers, shrimp pellets and flake food. Usually though, they just go up and down the plants, decor and walls just getting all of the algae.
Thats funny, I didn't think there were black mystery snails either, at the LPS they had yellow and black in the same tank and just named them "yellow" or "black" mystery snails.
I have another question though. How do you know the difference between when your snail is hibernating, or when it is dead?
