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.

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.
