So I'm trying to breed apple snails for my eel (not sure if he'll like them, but whatever)

I have a 20g tank, fully cycled, at 0-0- <1

In the tank are half a dozen snails and 1 goldfish.

What I see a few times now is a snail eating another snail. Did the snail kill then eat the other snail, or did it die and he ate it? What are common causes of snail death? I have been feeding them seaweed mostly, and some spinach / zucchinni
