What To Feed Nerite Snails

i'm planning on getting 2 nerite snails for one of my tanks but I don't have anything to feed them during quarantine so I was wondering if I can feed them other things like algae wafers or fish flakes or something.

I had a similar worry when I moved mine to a new tank. I moved over an algae covered submarine. Do you have something you could move temporarily with some algae on it?

You could leave some gallon jars of water in the sun for a week and see if you can grow some algae for them. Then you could just put the jars into the QT.

Boil any green veggies so they sink but not to much that theyre falling apart

I have some gravel with algae on it but the quarantine tank doesn't have a light so the algae might die

I'm worried about mine because I put it in a new tank with no algae. I thought they were scavengers that ate anything but now I'm reading that they really only eat algae.

ya I'm worried I will have that same problem that's why I'm trying to figure something out before they are here

I bought a plant from the LFS which was covered in algae. I don't know if it was needed, it is clean now.
