White Wizard Snails are omnivorous and are excellent scavengers. They will consume algae but are not the best at it. This snail uses its gills to filter feed. They trap microorganisms in the water column that makes your tank cleaner.
These snails are not fussy and will eat pretty much anything you put in the aquarium from fish flakes and granules to shrimp pellets and algae wafers which are good options for these snails as they sink to the bottom of the tank and remain there until the snails come across them.
It is also advisable to occasionally add blanched vegetables like spinach, zucchini, cucumber, carrots and sprouts these snails will appreciate that.
Copper is toxic to invertebrates such as aquatic snails, crabs, shrimps, etc. Many commercial fish foods, medications, and plant fertilizers contain copper sulfate. Please avoid any aquarium product contains copper of any form or they may cause harm or even death to your invertebrates.
