Got hitch hikers, a few questions

I just finished setting up my tank, and its 3:30am .....yawn. All I have in there right now is sand, and a strong power head. I only have the tank filled about half way because I'm going to have to move it in a few weeks. I got 2 (that I saw) snail hitch-hikers. I won't get my live rock until I actually move the tank. Is there anything I should put in there for them to munch on in the mean time? I'm going to put a few pieces of krill in there tonight just to keep the bacteria going. I have the tank at 70 and will slowly inch it up over the next few days.

Fish are friends, not food

We weep for the bird's cry, but not for the blood of a fish. Blessed are those who have voice.

They may eat the krill but you could toss in a few flakes from time to time just in case.
