you'd be surprised how long it might live but It'll probably kick it within the week if it doesn't make it.

If you are concerned about the snail you can do a series of PWC to keep levels a bit lower. It will prolong the cycle, however.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Why not keep the snail in premixed SW in another plastic/rubber container? No need to keep him in the water the LR is curing in.

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
