Pleco sucking on snails!

I got a BNP and he/she keeps sucking on my apple snails shells would it be mistaking it for food? And will it harm the snail none have died from it yet

Probably cleaning them. Are you feeding it anything for bottom feeders, like Hikari bottom feeder sinking wafers or Algae wafer pieces?
