Re: snail and salt #2
Snails and salt aren't a good mix.

You could have a search through the info on www.applesnail.net if you wanted to double check.

Re: snail and salt #3
It would depend on how much salt you use. I use 1 tsp per gallon and my big apple snail is fine. Always make sure you dissolve all of the salt first though.
