Snails In Dry-start Tank

    Yesterday I rescaped my 9 gallon nano and planted Monte Carlo to do a dry-start carpet. My tank had been running for several months prior and had a healthy snail population. Most of them I was able to collect and put into other tanks, but beneath my substrate I have MTS.

    Will they survive as long as the environment is kept sufficiently humidified? I am trying to keep the substrate moist and I also spritz the glass with distilled water. As far as food there should be plenty of organic matter to keep them fed.

    Is the tank covered? I’d assume most of them would be fine if it was kept really moist

    I have plastic wrap over the top to hold in humidity.
