Tips for feeding hermits and snails

Hello, I have a newly cycled tank and am ready to stock! I am going to be getting some snails and some hermits, but am worried that they will not be able to eat enough due to the tank being new. I was looking at possibly buying algae tab to drop in for feeding until I can get enough growth for them to eat. Just wondering if anyone had any product suggestions for the tabs or any other ideas! Thanks everyone!

They will eat about anything they can get their claws on, including snails. Once you start feeding the tank, they should be fine. Start with a small crew since there will be little for them to eat.

Do you think algae tabs are appropriate to feed them or should I wrap some nori around a rock?

Variety is best, you'll want to feed you fish various foods, but the tabs should be good for now.
