you dont, they will continue eating the algae that will come back in a few days. You cant keep a tank algae free for long.

algae wafers, blanched veggies, and sheet nori will work also.

Wolf, there is no need to waste money on food, when the snails can get their food off lr and the walls of the tank.

Well, they'll eat it. They're herbivores.

if your really worried about em put in a few 3-4 small pieces of nori.. they will eat it. It's cheap enough and it'll make you feel better...

They don't need anymore food. They got tons in there...

They will continue to pick off the live rock and the glass even if you cannot see it doesnt mean that its not there.
