If you are reffering to snails inside a fish tank, then the best thing to do is to not clean the tank. That is the snails job as they eat the alge produced by the fish. so if you just have snails and no fish, then i suggest you buy fish to suit your tank to help give the snails the food they require.

One difference is that Apple Snails are freshwater snails and Garden Snails are land snails.

They promote a full cycle of the eco-system.

If you are keeping pet snails that have similar markings and cannot tell them apart, use different coloured paints (not water-based) or nail varnish to put a small dot of colour on the shell to help with identification. If the question meant "how do you tell male and female snails apart?", then the answer is that there are no male or female snails. Snails are hermaphrodites (have characteristics of both sexes) and so any two snails can reproduce.
