    Can a pond snail survive in brackish water?

    I think so. I may be wrong but don't nerite snails breed in brackish water?

    Nerite snails do indeed reproduce in brackish water. Not sure on pond snails...

    It depends on how brackish the water is. In my low end brackish tank I have nerite, ramshorns and Malaysian trumpet snails. The only ones that haven't reproduced are the nerites.

    It can't hurt to try. The worst thing that will happen is they'll get eaten. (Actually the worst thing is they'll thrive and then you'll have tiny snails everywhere. )
