unless you have a big pond or small lake, it's not really possible/probable to my knowledge and far cheaper just purchase. If you DO have a big pond, or large lake, just start buying goldfish and tossing them in their and they will do all the work. generally they spawn in the spring.

10 gallons is WAY too small for goldfish. Not even considering the size they get but they produce a ton of waste

20 Gallon Snail Tank
??? Gold, Brown/Black, Ivory Mystery Snails (lots of babies and eggs too)
??? Pond Snails

10 Gallon Baby Marbled Tank

10 Gallon Planted
Unknown plants
Lots of Ghost Shrimp (some berried up :D)

I suggest doing a lot of research on their care. A ten gallon is way too small because they produce a lot of waste and will grow too big for it

Get a WAY bigger tank for them or take them to your fish store.
