What do they eat when they run out of prey(those damn trumpet snails?

Thinking of getting some for my discus tank.

Thanks in advance

They would probably eat some sort of sinking food like a shrimp pellet. Although i'm not sure about that. Maybe setup a tank for MTS to throw into the main tank to feed the assassins?

Chances of them running completely out of food if you have a decent population of snails is slim especially in a large tank.

Will these go after big apple snails? Zebra snails?

Yes they have been known to gang up on snails larger than them selves adn group feed.
