    Feed them frequently. You'll have snails in no time :)

    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.

    Swap them for mts, theyll multiply quicker.

    Depends on the water hardness, but i would assume it could.
