i think rinsing them in the tap water must help elimanting some stuff. and any snails they might carry. i usually leave the snails though, if u dont overfeed ur tanks they wont overpopulate.

oh and these are unfiltered too......i dont think youll have any issues.

Ugh! I don't like those little snails. When I used to keep dwarf gouramies they overtook my tank.

But i learned my lesson. You always rinse your plants under tap watter first. Wash each frond by hand so you can feel for snails and their egg cases. They feel kind of like jelly, and they're clear so it's tricky to see. That's why you gotta look for them by hand. Anyway, they detach if you wash them, but you may have to scrape gently with your fingernails too.

I got all my Hornwort and looked at the tank the next day and there were three little itty bitty snails in my tank! They are so cute, and I don't have the heart to kill them. :) I hope Angel hasn't eaten them. LOL

The snails are helpful in bigger tanks, I have found only a few in my tanks but only in the ones with plants from petsmart. I don't mind them and I agree they are cute.

LOL maybe you should name him Houdini. I have a few bladder snails that hitch hiked in on some plants in one tank. Then I have 4 Mystery Snails, a black, a blue, a purple, and an ivory.
