Okay, potentially silly question time.
I bought some anubias plants a little over a week ago and since it was my first try with live plants I just plonked them into my (empty, cycling) tank without cleaning them. Aaaaand now I have a small collection of tiny snails crawling around in there. Since I don't know what kind of snails they are (too small to tell at this point), I want them out of there before I put my bettas in. However I don't want to have to completely restart the cycling on the tank, either.
I've already taken the plants out and put them in a bucket of water for the time being, hoping I can starve the snails left in the tank. But I don't know how long that would take, or if it's even possible. 8/
Any advice on ways I can completely decimate these guys without restarting the tank? Preferably without having to buy any kinds of fish or other snails right now since it's only a little 10 gallon and I have no other tanks to move them to after the job's done (and I'm still undecided about getting proper snails for the tank).
