What are my snails going to eat?

About a week ago I got 5 mexican turbo snails, they are wonderful. The first day they ate all of the diatoms, now here comes the problem. What do they eat now?
Are they detrivores?

They will find food even if you can't see it. If there is live rock or live sand they will feed off that as well as the glass...

Ok I put flakes in there for the peps and sometimes they remain uneaten. I guess they can eat that.
