Do you have the recipe for the snail food? I might want to try it for my nerite.

Hmmm... Nerite snails feed of algae. You can try the "home-made Snail Jello".
Find Algae-based foods. I heard that U can even try "Snail Biscuits". Alot of people try different ways 4 these foods. Good luck on finding one that fits 4 U.

Well, you could do either these things:

Adding a handful of crushed coral into a mesh bag and hang it on the side of the filter, or add it into the filter itself. Now, this will only be safe if your pH is also low, crushed coral will increase your pH, so, if you already have normal ~ high pH, I wouldn't recommend it.

Marine liquid calcium would work either, be careful with this, and don't overdose.

Vegetables that are high in calcium like spinach, blanching them and letting your snails feast on them will work too.

My PH is 7. I feed my nerite algae pellets with the occasional raw cucumber.

Basically cooking the vegetable for like 30 seconds to ensure it's softened enough so your snails/otos/shrimps can eat them.

Just plop your veggies in boiling water for like 30 seconds.

Cucumbers don't need to be blanched because they're soft on the inside, while zucchinis and spinach when raw, are hard and tough, blanching is recommended.
