OK, now thanks to Master Grower I am interested in snails and I want to get a few and grow them as big as possible. I was wondering if anyone else is into raising snails.
Locally we have black and gold Mystery snails and various darker colored / patterned Nerite snails. On ebay there is also Japanese Trapdoor snails which look like moss covered Mystery snails about golf ball size but I don't think they have the potential to get as big, and may not be as amphibious as Mysteries.
I've been reading up on the Mystery / Apple snails online since they are the biggest we're allowed to have legally as pets and some sources say they will grow faster when given a tiny/shallow amount of beer and bread along with their fruits and veggies. Of course these items are only possible to be on the menu when they are kept in a semi aquatic terrarium. I'm hip to raise some golf ball to baseball sized Mysteries and I was wondering if anyone here has tried any of the power feeding methods with a goal to raise the biggest snails possible?
I'm interested in any hobby snail input from you guys - let's talk about snails!
