    You’d probably break the bank before you run out of room. Lol a hundred easy; the bioload is very minimal with snails

    They say about 5 snails per ten gallons but snails are very peaceful and helpful. They share room easily but make sure they have enough room to roam freely. I’d recommend starting off with 2-10 and seeing how they do together. Don’t overrun your tank.

    Depends on how many snails and fish you’d like to have in your tank. I have 5
    Snails and a Betta in my 10 gallon tank eventually I’ll be upgrading to atleast a 20 gallon. I say start small with your snails atleast because if you have male and female mystery snails they will lay eggs and be fertilized. Which means you could end up with a lot of snails, which btw snails are absolutely amazing and the coolest creatures ever. The more research I do on mystery snails and other types of snails the more in love I become. I’ve read that dwarf frogs can actually get aggressive towards fish so you may want to look into that as well if you are getting fish.
