I was just talking to my friend at petsmart the other day about snails and he said the apple snails are named for just that- they will reach the size of an apple! I don't suggest cramping it in a 10 gallon, because A) you'd be limited on what other fish you could tank with it, if any at all and B) you'd be limiting his eating parameters as well, because if im correct, they eat algae and stuff so he wouldn't have much room to wander. I'd say for one THAT size, 40-55 gallons minimum, but you'd be safe with ONE small one in a 10 gallon for a year or so. And i say this without googling first, so dont quote me on it.
