Can I put a rabbit snail in a tank without a heater?
The reason I ask is, I have a snail infestation after buying some new plants. They are everywhere. I have tried snail traps, lettuce leaves etc. I want to put some assassin snails in the tank but I know they will eat my rabbit snail. I wondered if I could give him to my grandchildren who have a coldwater goldfish tank.

There are multiple different species of rabbit snails and some do need rather warm water. The other thing I would be worried about is the goldfish eating the rabbit snail as they grow. Mine are small right now, but an adult goldfish (6-8in) could easily eat a rabbit snail. Also goldfish tanks are notoriously dirty so there is a risk that the lower water quality could harm your snail as inverts are much more sensitive about that kind of thing than fish are.
