Easy way to keep them in place, just fill their inventory with stone. Encumbered, they will not move, even on wander. Then for feeding, put cake in a tough. They will stay in place and alive! Making you resources the whole time... Up to the top for knowledge!
TIPP: Achatinas can produce organic Polymer. You can just craft a fridge with the organic Polymer and destroy it. Every time you destroy a fridge you get normal Polymer back. That means you can transform organic Polymer to normal Polymer. I found it out yesterday by myself.
Currently got a glitch on Mobile. It holds 100 cementing paste. If you take that, then quit the game completely and immediately come back in, it has respawned 100 Cementing Paste. I’ve just got 1000 in a couple minutes by doing that.
When tamed, the Achatina can produce Achatina paste, an alternative to cementing paste, passively when on wandering. You could also collect it when they are moving, their paste/slime will be on the ground shaped in a similar feces ball.
