Basically, yes. Though that is if you are just interested in doing a snail farm or Pond snails or Malaysian Trumpet snails, but if it's the snails like Nerite or Apple/Mystery, than no it would not.

The bowl would work with nerites, they would just have to take out the baby snails more often. And it would be harder to keep in good water conditions because you have to add marine salt.

if you want to raise them for assassin food, I'd get a few ramshorns, they breed like crazy. In my 10G breeding tank(for pleco babies/raising), I got around 50 snails within 2 weeks after adding 6(hitched a ride from my LFS)

just put those in a bowl and in a few weeks you will have many

I think they are just trying to build their snail colony back up... IMO the easiest snail to breed is pond snail because basically you put one in a tank, and in a while there will be baby snails. I but they can become a pest. I however, I with assassin snails that shouldn't be a problem.
