Any suggestions on the largest non-plant eating tropical freshwater snail?

The apples look very nice but the larger ones eat plants i think.

I guess all the large snails would need to be plant eaters to get the required nutrition, algae wouldn't cut it...

My favourite snails are apple snails (Pomacea bridgesii). They can grow to 1.5 inches in diameter, are peaceful and dont eat aquarium plants. They come in 8 different colours too! affraid There are many different species of apple snail, and yes, the larger species; Pomacea Canaliculata for example, will eat aquarium plants. Neutral
