I would still say you need many more tall plants and hiding caves

Think "jungle" or "wilderness" when adding plants. It should be dense and tall

Should I get those pots that are smaller than the one I got? Like two of them and have them in the tank also?
What are some other tall plants I can have?

I feel like it is easiest just to release them all together and not worry about least or most aggressive.
+1

Exact same thing happened with my tank- the girl I thought was "least aggressive" was the alpha for a few days, then got pegged down my "second least aggressive" who now happily resides at the top of the food chain XD

You can plant hornwort but the bottom pines will fall off if they don't get enough light. I've had terrible luck with hornwort. Supposedly its easy to keep alive but mine always dies and makes a huge piney mess in the tank. I just got some cabomba which is nice and bushy and tall.

I highly recommend cabomba and wisteria. I absolutely abhor hornwort, it makes a huge mess and I don't feel it is that pretty. Of course, there are many people that love it, so it is up to you.

As for killing the snails, I'm not too sure about that. I've never had any issues with plants being infested with them.

I heard 19 parts water 1 part bleach solution and dip the plants in for no more than a minute. It should kill any eggs on the plants. I've never had a problem with snails and when I had a little too many for my liking I bought a few assassin snails and they ate every single pond/ramshorn snail within a few weeks O_O M y assassins have now started breeding, lol. Only problem is now I need to feed them blood worms which isn't easy because my betta loves to find them before the snails get to them :)
