turbo snails

I have 3 turbo snails as i had a green hair algae problem. I replaced my light bulbs, since my phosphates-0,nitrates-0, and water flow wasnt the problem the bulbs were the only thing left. Now i dont have any algae, i aint sure if the snails are getting any food. They seem to be more active lately, focusing more on the glass which is clean. Do they eat anything else?

My turbos are still going strong 3 years after my HA outbreak. They find plenty to eat on the rocks and love to knock corals off their rocks.

I agree that there is plenty for them to eat on the glass, sand and rocks. It might not look like it but there is.
