What do you do when two snails have a fight?

Leave them to slug it out!

Interesting Fact: Most snails have thousands of microscopic tooth-like structures located on a ribbon-like tongue called a radula. The radula works like a file, ripping food into small pieces. Many snails are herbivorous, eating plants or rasping algae from surfaces with their radulae, though a few land species and many marine species are omnivores or predatory carnivores.Β  ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snail#Overview )
