I wasn't sure which topic to put this post under, but I have a trapdoor/chinese mystery snail that I found in a lake and I decided to keep it as a pet. I set up the tank yesterday and put an algae wafer in but it seemed to ignore it (it crawled over it, but it didn't look like it ate any of it). Since this snail is from the wild, is it used to just eating algae off of rocks and other stuff in the lake? It ignored a cucumber I put in there as well. Does it not think it's food?

I also want to grow algae in the tank as well, however the tank is going to be placed in my room and there isn't much sunlight for algae to grow. Is there a certain type of lamp I can put over the tank to help grow algae for the snail? I'm going to try to find a rock from the lake I got the snail from as well with algae on it in hopes of it growing in the tank for the snail to eat.

Also how long can a snail go without eating?
