I'd go with the veggies. They love that more than wafers. Cucumber, blanched zucchini, I haven tried green beans but hey, why not. I'd probably blanch them first.

Tried putting cucumber in front of the one who hasn't moved much, but he didn't go for it :/ maybe he's getting used to the new home cause I know he's alive. Or just likes the part of driftwood I placed them...

Lol ok if they hatch I'll try to ship them, but beware, never shipped anything or plants even

I feed veggies (zucchini, spinach, lettuce) and algae wafers in my tank, and I've never seen my snail go for any of it. But it has cleaned the back wall of my tank clean. I would guess that unless your tank is brand new and devoid of algae, it's snacking on something.

One is gone without a trace, so it's probably in the filter munching since that's where the most algae is lol.

Minimal diatoms on the glass, but the rocks and driftwood do have some built up from the old tank.
