Will dividing a tank stop newborn snails from moving between plants?

At least long enough to make sure all my plants are clean. I guess I'm asking if I can build a muti-celled quarantine tank for plants to insure no snails get in my big tank

And yes I know cichlids eat snails and assassins will hunt them down

I try to take care of all sanctioned assassinations in-house and quarantine is a big advantage

If I fail, I'll subcontract to those assassins

Thank you

Most likely not. Either they'll climb through or over on their own or you'll inadverntantly move some over yourself just moving your hands between sides. Most newborn/hatched snails are teeny.
