He'll likely graze a lot on fish waste, excess food and algae but will need supplemental feedings of blanched veggies or algae wafers to ensure he doesn't starve.

Algae Wafers are great for snails and also veggies like lettuce. I read its a myth they eat fish waste, they dont eat fish waste. I have baby snails that came on some water plants I brought they are so cute ! I think they are Pond snails. You can also do a goggle search and find out everything you want to know about Snails that live in water. I have seen the baby snails floating around sometimes they seem fine and getting bigger everyday.

They wont eat fish poop if thats what you mean by waste but they will eat any food the other fish missed like flakes and whatnot. I think they also munch on decaying plant matter as well.

if you get a veggie clip from petco or petsmart it makes feeding veggies easier since you attach the cucumber to the clip and suction cup it to the tank wall. Otherwise it will float. you dont want to keep it in the water for more then 24-48 hours or it will get all nasty. I only keep decaying veggies in the tank if the snail is actually eating them. Sometimes they dont and it rots in the water and makes a mess.

I never see my mystery snail floating but I do see my trapdoors floating upside down with their meaty part sticking out on the surface. I think they are looking for food but not sure. They eventually sink back down
