do pink kissing gouramis eat snails?

i have a few snails, not totally sure what kind, (i got them from walmart to feed my green spotted puffer), and i was wondering if i could put them in my tank with my pink kissing gourami. the gourami is about 4-5 inches, and the snails are tiny. do you think the gourami will eat them? thanks. also, how long does it take for the snails to lay eggs? i have 8 snails now

I think the snails will be fine with the gourami.
To answer you snail breeding question,It would help to know what kind of snails you have. Ramshorn snails are a type of snail commonly fed to puffers.

Opps, I guess I was wrong about gouramis. Sorry.
When I had gouramis, they did nothing but float around the top.

Yea, doing a little google search, gouramis do kill snails, so sorry to misinform you!
