I would like to breed snails for my dwarf puffer to eat. I just got a bunch of pond snails off of aquabid and I would like to keep them in my three gallon kritter keeper (which I measured and hold more like 4 and half gallons). The problem is, I don't have an extra filter and I really don't want to pay money for a new one. Can I keep them in the kritter keeper with just weekly water changes or however many water changes are necessary? They would have live plants.
I'm not sure I just bought a tiny sponge filter that was for 15 dollars at my local petco, snails don't make that much of a mess I assume it would be ok but you should check with someone else first
40 gallon with 13 hermit crabs- 11 PPs, 1 E, 1 Straw
~2 Dwarf Puffer- Sidney and Cairo, 4 Amano Shrimp, 4 Blue Pearl Shrimp, 4 Yellow Cherry Shrimp, 2 Mandarin Cherry Shrimp, Too many RCS, 4 Crystal Red Shrimp, 4- Otos
~White/Teal/Red Betta- Phantom, Snails
~Leopard Gecko- Desert Rose
Pond snails are bullet proof. Could care less about water quality. Weekly is fine. You can overfeed and they just explode in numbers.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

A lot of 'pond' snails breath air from the surface, so you should'nt worry about lack of oxygen. I'm sure they'd appreciate live plants, and if its in a light place then that should allow for plenty of algae. A weekly water change sounds okay, just be sure to stir up their poop before you change water (take some water out, pour it back in to stir up the poop), a bit gross but they do poop alot it seems so you don't wanna let it build up too much.
