Snails on new plants

Hey everyone, happy to be back online :)

My question involves those annoying little snails on live plants bought at my LFS. Is there a good way to remove them from the plants so my new 55G does not become infested? Thanks!

Control feeding rations. A large food source is often the cause for snail population boom.
