Provide a ton of food, stable water, and nutrients they need to keep good shell growth and you will have an explosion in 2-3 weeks time (pretty much the amount of time it takes to visibly see them), i would use sand for the MTS as they will burrow in it. They like to come out after dark, fresh veggies like carrot, sweet potato, zucchini, and other calcium rich veggies are most popular with the snails you want.

Feed 'um, LOL. I say that because when people have a snail population bloom in the tank it's because they are overfeeding.

Why are you starting a snail tank? I ask because I just bought 2 pea puffers. They are so adorable. I'm thinking about what I want to do about the snails.

I want to breed them and sell them

I have a 5 gallon I threw all of my pest snails into. I have 3 kinds, not sure what except mts.

Just feed daily, tons of snails and eggs.

Once the rest of my tanks settle i plan on keeping a small snail bowl so i can give my zebra loaches a fresh supply of snails.

I heard a story a while back about having had MTS breed like mad after being frozen in a paint pail full of bleach for 6 months... I don't condone or recommend anything of the sort, but I don't think they need any help.
