    What kind of snails? If they're just regular pond snails they're hermaproditic so you only need one to breed. They actually multiply really easily. Most people have problems getting rid of them because they multiply so much.

    well i dont realy know i think just regular pond snails. none have multiplyed but they are not vary big so they might have to get older or biger thats just my guess. and there were tons of them and there were 2 dif looking kinds of snails but i only took 1 kind. i have a pic of the snail but i dont know how to put it on here. i know how to e-mail tho.

    Give them a few weeks. It helps if you have live plants. If not, you can put a tiny piece of lettuce in there (if it start to rot, take it out).
