Pond snails

Post by Kanzy » Sat Aug 20, 2016 3:36 pm

Hey guys I'm new to this forum and I'm currently cycling my new tank for a DP. I'm thinking of breeding pond snails for a source of food but with 0 knowledge on pond snails, I have a couple questions.
1. Do they need fully cycled water?
2. Can I breed them in lunch box sized containers?
3. Do they need an airpump?
4. What do I feed them?
5. What plants do I need to provide them with?

Sorry if it's posted in the wrong category :?

You really don't need snails, mine eat live black worms but they also eat thawed bloodworms
