Snails are in QT now what?

Got my snails in the mail the day before yesterday...I slowly adapted them to their QT tank (moonies previous tank, he just moved to a new tank so they are in moonies old water, they did a number on the algea that was in there! cleaned the entire tank over night).

Now that they are in the QT tank, should I feed them bottom feeder type algea wafers like you get at the petstore?

How long do I wait to add them to the betta tanks?

What am I supposed to be watching for while in QT?

Thanks! :)

The only question I can answer is yes you can feed them the algae wafers, I have pond snails (not in with my Betta) and they love those, also they can eat veggies like cucumber, green beans, etc. Good luck with the snails what type did you get ?
