So I have a tank... that I needed to be cleaned daily because my roommate is fond of overfeeding my betta sorority tank...

So I ordered ~30 nerite snails.

Whoop.

What's their diet?

Algae is usually the main component of their diet but if and when that runs out they should be supplmented with veggies.

Agreed with above I found 3 in a 20 long 2 to many I moved the other 2 to a larger tank.

You'll have to feed them. I have found one nerite can keep my 5.5Gs pretty clean, and they are basically sitting in a window.
