Question Malaysian Trumpet snail questions

I'm considering posting a WTB for some MTS, but I have a few questions first.

These will be going into dirt tanks - I've already been assured they do well in them (my substrate would benefit from them I'm sure), but does anyone here actually have them in dirt tanks, and have they brought soil above the cap when moving about = mucking up the water, leaving silt on top of the cap?

Also, if they overpopulate, can they be removed with the same trick that works on other snails - namely luring them with skewered veggies or lettuce and removing them in groups? I don't want to ever introduce assassin snails as I have a population of ramshorns I adore.
