How big r they? I'll suggest u to put them in a seperate tank, coz 1. they may got sucked up in the filter 2. some fish may eat them..

Other than these, snails r quite hardy, so there shouldn't b anymore problems. U'll want to keep more live plants too! :D

Congrats on the snails, I'm sure you know what they eat (pretty much anything :p ) but greens such as spinach and cucumber and fish food is also a good diet for them (if in the fish tank they obviously won't reach they fish food in time unless you over feed which is not really a good idea! :)

Also a bit of calcium in the water works a treat for them as they grow (obviously their shell increases dramatically in size) a way I did this was cuttlefish bone (bought from petstore and sold for birds (their beak As far as I know) ) also you can get calcium tablets from health stores I think :)
