feeding nerite snails???


Hi,
Can anyone tell me if I should be providing alternate sources of food for my nerite snails?
I have a 65 gallon deep tank with lots of various plants and lots of communtity fish - tetras, angels, bolivans, guppies, platys etc.
I had a BHA outbreak and so i bought 6 nerite snails. 2 died pretty quick but the others are doing well (just starting to lay eggs) but they have totally cleaned my entire tank. It looks absolutely amazing but i am worried that they won't have enough to eat.
What should I be doing for them??
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
Thanks

Yup they'll find it. Usually fairly quick in my experience.
