If you put a sheet of nori or the dried seaweed in the tank they will eat that.

The seaweed breaks down after a couple of hours and it will add nutrients to the tank just as if you were feeding your fish. As long as you don't put large amounts of it in there you should see any problems. Even just a 2" x 2" piece would be a lot of food for your snails. You will probably need to weight it down or tie it to a piece of rock so it doesn't float away.
