Mystery snail feeding station ~

I set up a new tank last year and of course there was no algae in it.
I knew it was just a matter of time so I added 3 mystery snails as a clean up crew.
I was concerned about providing food for them and got frustrated because everything that was intended for them was getting eaten by the fish .
Couldn't find a solution so I came up with my own.

What a really good idea.

And I hadn't noticed the holding it down part. Mine just gobble up all the leftovers, since they do not have a feeding station...
Favorite tank right now - 12G Edge nano fish

New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
