Re: 20ltr snail tank #2
you might have better luck with tadpole snails, or some lymnaea, personally i have found they breed and grow faster than ramshorns.. room temp somewhere warm would be fine, but a heater to keep a constant temp wouldnt hurt either. also i would just keep it as a snail tank, i just have a load of elodea in mine, somethign for them to climb on, and i tend to leave the algae to grow for them to so cant relaly see in a lot of the time, only through the trails from where its been eaten! and not substrate either to make is easier to siphon up gunk.
