Feeding Mexican Snails

Just stocked a new 55 gal salt aquarium with 3 Mexican snails. No algae in the tank, yet. I have read that feeding them norI is maybe a good idea.

Tank cycled three weeks with a bit of live rock and sand before adding any live critters. Water tests are good.

If it is a good idea, how much do I add and how do I add it to ensure they get it?

Adding norI is a good idea if you don’t want to eventually replace them.

I do not understand what your comment.

It is a good idea to add a food source since the tank is currently algae free. This way they won't go hungry.

Roger that...I am just not sure how to add it. Just drop in it and watch it float around?

I would weigh it down with a rock or a spoon in the short term but if you'll be feeding veggies or algae sheets regularly, you should probably get an aquarium veggie/algae clip to make things easy. Btw, suction cups aren't my favorite so if you go this route I'd suggest getting a clip with a magnet attachment. Like this...
