I believe most people dip with H2O2 as that will degrade by itself over time.
Assassin snails will go after bladder snails. But you are correct in that they won't touch small ones.

Ha! OK. I guess I'm naive...
I thought that if I removed the visible snails, and didn't see any new ones after x days/weeks that perhaps I had no eggs...
The plant is frogbit, which I believe is fairly hardy.
I have quite a bit, so I can test a dip on some.
Do I use a diluted bleach or hydrogen peroxide?
And, will assassin snails go after bladder snails? I thought they might be too small.

Hah... I bet if you quarantined for snail eggs the eggs would just hatch and lay more eggs... buahahahaha!
They are evil.

how long to quarantine for snail eggs?
I got some plants last week, which had a couple of tiny snails on them.
I pulled out the snails, and put the remaining plants in a dish with water to quarantine them. What's a reasonable length of time to rule out additional snails/eggs on the plants?
They were about 1.5mm and I think they might be a couple of pond/bladder snails and two ramshorn snails. They've gotten bigger already, but still too tiny for me to positively identify.
The ramshorn snails I am ambivalent about. But I would like to avoid the pond/bladder snails if I can.
Do assassin snails eat either of these?
