how many and what kind of snails can i put in a 5g? and a 3g? :help:

I dont know about how many as im relatively new to aquariums but i do know that zebra nerites cant reproduce unless there is salt in the water and mystery snails need a male and female to reproduce. You could get a mystery snail but anymore than one and you would be gambling with a hostile takeover. hope that helps a little to at least give you an idea.

The gamble in keeping multiple mysteries in not risky at all. If they do manage to lay eggs, the sack is easily cut away and disposed of. malysian trumpet snails (MTS) and pond snails are the ones that can take over a tank.
