Those are astrea snails. You don't need to feed them as they will eat detritus, waste, and algae which is supplied by your tank. They're also very good snails. However, if they fall over on their shells, you must upright them otherwise they will die. They are incapable of righting themselves.

The snail to the far right in the right picture sortof looks like a trochus.. but i doubt it. Most likely all astreas.

One other question is the small bent over object in the sand some sort of a mushroom or and type or coral. It was in the bag when i got the LR and I just put it in the sand, the top looks like some kinda mushroom but i dont know anything about it.
