Get snails out of one tank and into another

I am upgrading to a bigger tank and have some Malayan Trumpet Snails that are very small. How do I get them all. I found a thread once but I didn't pay very much attention to it. Now I have searched and cant find it. Thanks for any help.

I think algae wafers in a cup or some kind of container would work. They should mass in there and then you can take most of them out. Might take a while, depends on what else is in the tank I guess(could overfeed something else with the wafers).

Just an idea

The above idea would work but you'd have to check the cup and remove snails in the middle of the night when they are active.

This tank is getting shut down for now so I will try the algae wafer idea. Thanks.
