So... Let's say that I change the water 75% on Monday and 100% on Saturday. Would that work? I wouldnt want to hurt the snail. Maybe when I set up my 30 gal. (found it in the lake) and spoil a petstore male...

Apple snails need 2.5 gal to themselves, so you could do one apple and one betta in a 5 gal, but they do poop like absolute monsters. A nerite should be ok in a 2.5.

Edit: My apples are never slow, they might rest during the daylight, but at night they motor! Seriously slow as a snail? Whoever created that saying never met an aquatic snail.

I shall wait then. I plan on doing a 30 gallon divided three ways.
Olympia: I know right? A perfectly fine 30 gallon fishtank (with some minor scratches) floating around in the lake. Cleaned it up and it holds water....
