    Do vampire plecos eat snails? I never seen my 2 vampire plecos eat food they never come out when I feed in the morning but they are still alive and it's been about 3 months since I got them. When I do my weekly water change I seen a lot of empty snail shells, so just wondering if the snails are keeping them alive or is it something else?

    I guess they prefer live food?
