Here are the three main food groups you should feed your snails: pellets, flakes, and shredded vegetable matter. Pellets are good for all types of snails while flakes are especially good for Royal Conchs and African Pygmy Snails. Shredded vegetable matter is perfect for most other types of snails.

First, it's important to understand that different species of snails need different food. Some snails need high levels of protein, and others need more fiber. 

Second, you'll need to decide what size pellet or flake you want to feed your snail. The general rule of thumb is to give your snail one pellet the size of its head or smaller per week. You can gradually increase the number of pellets over time as long as they're eating them all. If your snail isn't eating its pellets, try changing the type or size of the pellet or adding some fresh vegetables to its diet.

Last, be sure to give your snail adequate calcium. Snails need calcium to build their shells and keep their muscles and nerves working properly. Calcium can be added to your snail's water or left out in the open for the snails to find. If you add calcium, make sure it's safe for snails because there are many different types of calcium that can be deadly if given to them by mistake.
