Why not scoop the gravel into a 5g bucket and keep well covered with water?

I think I would just add a little water back to the tank. Just enough so there is a little water covering the gravel.

Yea those snails are resilient little buggers, they should do fine with just a little water.

aww guys,you're the best
this is how it looked this morning
and then i fancied a change,and the bag inside the tank has wet plants in.
what do you think,it wouldn't really go with the floor if i left it black and silver.the towel is to keep the dust off.
