For normal snails it is easy lol. Good Luck. Be warned that they can easily over populate in a small tank very fast.

I would suggest not to feed the snails your betta food. This doesnt mean you CANT. Try getting Tropical fish food and let them sink to the bottom of the tank, also if there is a betta in the tank dont worry because i found that most betta will chew the flakes and spit them out.

Yea but the betta will probably eat it before it falls to the bottom.
To solve this i would soak the pellets for about 2-3 minutes and when you put them in the tank make sure you squeeze them because that way they will fall to the bottom.
