I know you all are going to criticise me, but I'm trying to introduce as many different types of non-plant eating snails into my planted aqarium. however, I have heard snails love lettuce but they haven't touched any of the pieces I've put in for them. could this be because they don't eat freshwater plants? and if this is the case are there any other alternitives? ( I do have algae in my tank but I'd like to make sure they get enough food.) I'm trying to feed MTS, pond snails, and ramshorns.

Snails prefer there food on the soft or rotting side, try blanching or leaving your lettuce to soften for a few days before you put it in the tank.

They like blanched zucchini and sushi nori (seaweed) as well.
Add some nerite and p. bridgesii to the mix... they rock!
