Yea, I feed them blanched vegetables (including spinach, chard, peas, green beans, zucchini, cucumber, squash, sweet potato, carrots, parsnip, plantain, etc...) I also feed them some fruits sometime (like blueberries, banana, pear and such). Snails enjoy a lot of foods. For protein they get leftover betta pellets and snello (which includes a mix of blanched veggies, powdered cuttlebone, bloodworms, powdered fish food, some water and gelatin). All my snails are well fed. The nerites never touch their gourmet assortment of favorite foods in the snail world, they are just obsessed with any bit of algae they can find. I once got the zebra to eat a little boiled cabbage and I may tray that again, but obviously they are getting enough food to sustain themselves elsewhere.
