Transfering plants.. loads of snails.. how to get rid of them?
I plan on buying a larger aquarium and would like to transfer my plants to it. However I have hoards of tiny brown snails in my 29 gallon tank. I forgot to rinse off a plant or two and think that is how it started. I pluck them out when I see them. With a new larger tank, I plan on buying new sand.
If I place the plants in a bucket of water is there anything I can add to it to kill the snails and/or eggs? Anything that won't harm the plants? Would aquarium salt and hot water be enough?
I have wisteria, amazon sword, anubias, horn wort, and val.

Thanks! I found it. I have to search the spice section in the grocery store for Alum. I didn't realize it's pickling spice. :)

Alum does work. Snail eggs are tough but your plants are tougher.Warning; Bulldog Pleco guarding my Sons tank now..
