Welcome to the dirted community. :)

The MTS wont bring up any dirt, mine never have, so I wouldn't worry about that. Also, don't get worried when you see pond snails. I do like having them in my tank, they serve their purpose. For some reason people hate snails. I think they are a key part to a balanced planted tank.

I assume you're planting heavy right away? By the time you plant heavy, do a couple water changes, cycle the tank, the excess nutrients shouldn't be a problem for the ottos.

Ottos are really sensitive, so make sure it's cycled first. This is probably my most favorite saying. Add plants fast, but add fish slow. Means you can plant it as quick and heavy as you want, but take your time with fish.
