|Pond snails becoming terrestrial?|
Quick question. How terrestrial can a pond snail become? I've noticed a few babies in the bucket when I'm doing a WC and sometimes after I pour the water out in my flowers. Do I need to put poison/snail bait out to save my flowers?

I think you might be better trying a "Place" that sells pond plants etc. I know for a fact land snails do not live in water for very long.

MTS out of fish tanks at the LFS, and they are multiplying with no problems. I just wondered if they are tossed out with the WC into the flowers, do they have the capacity to tolerate terrestrial conditions? Like say, slugs, dig underground to survive the hot dry days, and come out in the evening to feed. Do I have to worry about the pond snails doing the same and surviving the change? I always figured what got tossed out would die and brake down to feed the plants and other bugs outside. I don't want to have to worry about them eating my plants too.
