I want snails, but I'm scared.

I have one mystery snail and I love it.
I found the blue ramshorn snail to be beautiful!!! I wanted some until I found out they will over run your aquarium.
So my question is.... Which snails will not over run my aquarium. Im interested in a tiger nerite or a Malaysian trumpet. Would I be safe to just get one of each?

A nerite will be fine.

The malaysian trumpet snail(MTS) will breed fairly aggressively.

Ramshorn snails are fine, they are easy to sell so if you get too many just pop on here and sell some!

Other than that, snails will only overrun your tank if you overfeed them. They cant breed without a good food source.
