Malaysian Trumpet Snails Control of food?

ChrisBoffer

Hey just got 20 Malaysian Trumpet Snails, and 3 Zebra Nerite Snail and 6 sulawesi snails, for my planted tank.

My question is, how do i not overfeed the Malaysian Trumpet Snails, so they do not overpopulated my tank, but still need to feed the others snails, because for them to find the food it needs to be in the tank for some time and in that time the Malaysian Trumpet Snails will have food to eat.

But how often do i have to feed the other snails, and that food is best, in order to control the Malaysian Trumpet Snails?

I wouldnt feed them at all they should find enough on their own

If there’s fish in the tank they don’t need to be fed. I’ve got all but the third and I never feed them. They are a clean up crew. I find mts are great in plant tanks. Plants thrive. They eat all dead matter.
