| || | Mystery snails are not effective algae eaters. More than that, they need to be supplemented with calcium which can be incorporated in gel food recipes, vegetable matter, commercial foods, etc. You can feed them Caltrate or Tums just fine. There is no fixed rule for asexual snails. Both ramshorns and bladder snails will proliferate rather quickly. Only food supply can influence their number. If you are feeding less, they will noticeably decrease in number.
