breeding snails

I am kind of thinking about breeding snails as a side project.... What would I need to breed them? Could it be done in a very very low-tech way? Like a bowl or something like that? I know nerite snails need brakish water right?

What type of snails are you planning on breeding? Ramshorns, pond snails and apple snails all you need is a container that holds water.

Nerite snail eggs need brackish water to hatch.
