    Feeding nerite snails

    I bought 2 nerite snails a few weeks ago to help with my algae problem. They did an amazing job, but I now am wondering what they are eating as there isn't much algae left on the glass and ornaments anymore. What do you recommend I feed them? Algae wafers or any other foods? Thanks!
