 SNAILS?

OK, can I house a snail in my 5 gallon tank? Can you hold them, and not hurt them? I really dont know much about snails, and stuff. So, WHAT DO they eat? Thanks,

If your talking aquatic snails (mystery snail etc) I wouldnt recomend holding them but one or two of the larger snails would most likely be happy in a 5 gallon or a zillion of those mini ones lol... If your talking land snail you could probably do a few in a 5 gallon depending on what kind and how big they are... but keep in mind some snails (like garden snails) breed like crazy... i dont know much about other snails sry i cant help much...

OK, thank you guys (and gals) so much, I really appreciate it. Does anyone know Land snail Husbandry, and what to feed them? How do you tell if theyre boy or girl?
Thanks again,

I don’t have a snail, but from what I’ve read: vegetation like leafy greens, even mushrooms... fruit. BUT I’m not sure if there is any harmful vegetable/fruit to snails. And I don’t know about husbandry. Sorry :/
