So today i found a pond snail and immediately removed it. I then thought my fish might want to eat it so I cracked his shell and through him back in. The fish went nuts! Its seems that raising a colony of pond snails would be so easy. Do you guys think they would make a good staple diet?

Staple? No. Treat? Yes.
IMO fish ( or any living creature ) cannot live on just one type of food.

I disagree, I could eat chicken fajitas everyday, all day!

But seriously, yeah, agreed, as part of their diet, snails alone shouldn't constitute their entire diet alone.

I wasn't talking about just snails just a large amount of their food.

thats still a staple if im not mistaken, now like all live foods it could be used as a weekly treat.
