Removing snails

I bought some Riccia from a fellow hobbyist, but when I recieved it I was suprised to see some small snails. Not exactly sure what type but anyways I don't think I want them.

Will soaking the plants in tap water kill the snails without destroying the Riccia? Also is Riccia supposed to be in a lot of small pieces? For some reason it is, but it might just be trimmed bits. Any input appreciated.


How I feel about non-planted aquariums.

Riccia is very hardy. Did you mean to dip it in a bleach solution or just plain tap water? Tap water wont kill snails or their eggs. The trimmed bits should be fine once they adjusts and the conditions are right.
