Killing Pest Snails in Empty Aquarium Without Harming Future Inverts

441 3
Hi guys,

I have an aquarium that I've redesigned. In the redesign I've had no fish in the aquarium for a while while plants were growing in. I eventually lost the cycle so I'm currently starting to fishless cycle, but see an opportunity to remove all the pest snails in the aquarium since there are no live animals present.

Is there a chemical way to kill off all of the pest snails without leaving traces that will harm shrimp and pet snails in the future? I know I could add copper solutions but I'm concerned that they will stay in the tank after I've done water exchanges.
