I had a couple of snails in my fish bowl. I was told they eat dirt. I guess the bowl wasn't dirty enough. One day one of the Fish had a white spot on it and was moving sideways. The next thing I know the snail is on top of it. What do they eat actually?

dirt, plants, and algae. thats why we got our snail, so he can eat the algae off of the tank.
