It depends on the snail. If you don't have enough algae for it, it will starve. What kind of snail? Mexican turbo? If so, they will eat nori if you have little algae growing.

All of the algae eating snails will eat nori. You can get it at the supermarket.

I agree with the other posters.. I have a bunch of hermits and trochus snails, every two days I put some nori in the tank rubber banned to a rock for them to eat.. My anemone crab and reef lobster get a silverside each when I feed my eels.. Always good to supplement your inverts' diet..
