My snails were in the same bag (I got one mystery and one nerite) but they are both extremely healthy and happy.

I always dip my plants in a very mild bleach solution and then QT them for 2 weeks. You should quarantine every living thing that goes in your tank, even plants. I never noticed bugs on mine but then again as soon as I open them up they get dipped. I did notice quite a few pond snails however but they're killed by the bleach.

Edit to add.. I'm ordering my next set of plants from Heather however because she has almost everything I'm looking for (except christmas moss) but BOY is she expensive O.O I'm not even ordering everything I probably need and it's already like $52 including shipping.
How light is that bleach solution you use? I have never had issues but it is a good thing come to think of it. I am just scared of killing off the plants and then introducing anything with bleach into my tank and well..

Java fern will have these little brown bumps on the bottom of leaves. It's normal. I have a ton of pond snails in all my tanks but I have a dwarf puffer I feed them to. They're not so bad. Your fish may even eat them. Wraith and Logan suck them out of their shells just like Huey does. :)
