Has anyone had any experience with feeding nerite snails veggies? I haven't been able to find any information on this topic. I know they eat algae but what about, say, romaine lettuce? I believe that my cories eat the algae wafers I put in before the snails get a chance to.

You could try it but I think they eat mainly algae (and algae wafers).  Here is a link for you.  http://www.planetinverts.com/zebra_nerite_snail.html

When in doubt, do a water change.

Thanks Pat Mary. This is a very useful link. I will try it just to see but it looks like I am going to become an algae farmer!

 - - - and when you get tired of "farming" you can always use Algae Discs.  As Pat Mary indicated, they do love them  happy

hahaha the problem is that my cories love them too! Unfortunately, I have yet to see one of the snails win the race to the wafer!
