I am wanting to add 5-10 trumpet snails to my alge ridden 1gal planted tank with sand substrate. I've read that I should quarentine them, but for how long? Being that they can carry deseases, how long would it take for something they could be carrying to die off? I saw that ick can live up to two weeks in a snail. I'd like to get these guys in my tank as soon as possible.
Also, should I put some sand in the bottom of their QT tank? Especially if they're going to be in there for a couple of weeks at least?
