Snails help grow infusoria?

I read in a magazine that said the poo of snails would help feed infusoria. Is this true? If it is, would the population be significant enough to temporarily sustain a few fish?

Everything happens for a reason, but the reason isn't always good.

You cannot see the infusoria clearly enough to know if the population can sustain the fish. Dropping plenty of plants will guarantee your fish constant supply of microorganisms harboring them.
