    Grabbed a mystery snail but the goldfish in the tank all had anchor worm and had just been removed for treatment. Will my new snail pass it on to my fish (can snails even get anchor worm?)
    My quarantine is currently full of shrimp so he doesn't really have a home...

    Okay so since this is kind of an urgent thing, I have him in a betta cup (with my tank water) and rinsed him off. I think I'll switch out the water again in an hour and then put him in my tank? I just want to make sure he doesn't bring them over...
