Overfeeding or leaving a lot of excess food usually works.

Many pet stores will give away "pest" snails for free or only a few dollars.

I actually decided to keep puffers because I had a bunch of snails come in on some live plants.

You'll have hundreds in no time. I started with just 5 and ended up with too many.
