    I think i had one of my snails die, and the other snail eat is (cannibal!!) I have found my snail with carcasses in it's mouth before, and do not doubt that it may be the culprit... hope this helps!

    Welcome to Fishlore!!!!

    I recently had the same thing happen to one of my mystery snails. All I found was an empty shell. I guess the tank mates ate the body.
