I have just recently set up an aquarium, very early in the cycle phase (3 days) - I've added a few live plants, other than that just running the tank. I do however wish to avoid a snail population. I've noticed possible eggs on the plants I've purchased. Should I remove the plants and wash them? Soak them in a snail pesticide, use the pesticide in my tank since there is nothing in it anyway? Will the snails die since there is no food in my tank? Any comments and advice on the above is greatly appriciated. Thanks.
