When I moved (south to north) cross-country three years ago, I unintentionally moved my MT snails:

I placed my driftwood and gravel in a big rubbermaid container (covered) in the back of my topper-covered pickup. Parked in a hotel parking lot for about a week (house sold sooner than we could move) then drove north (in August). Stayed at my mothers for another 5 days (i think I remember flushing the container with water while there), moved to new house and waited for aquarium to arrive. Put gravel/driftwood into tank, filled with water, and found live snails!

So any of the methods mentioned above should be fine


72g bowfront planted, CO2, 2x - T5HO, Eheim 2213 and 2013, red tiger lotus, vals, java fern and moss, crypts, swords, mbuna tank: Yellow labs, Ps. demasoni, clown plecos, SAE's.
