Snails in my moss

Got some Java Moss today and put it in my tank and stuck it on a piece of dwood with a tac. I noticed it had 2 snails in it after an hour or so. I hope that I got them all! When I was a kid, I found a couple snails in the pond and put them in my 10 gal and before long snails were everywhere. Would like to not have that happen again. ANyway, I think the moss will look pretty neet when it starts growing.

I just got two nerite snails (everyone who sees them LOVES them!)...they are red and spotted. Anyway, once I got those, I didn't feel bad picking out all of the snails that have populated my tank since they migrated in on my plants from the LFS. I only had to take out a few and my population drastically dropped. Oh, and I think my yo-yo loaches (still babies) are eating the babies so thats a plus, too! I don't mind the few large ones that are left. They are pretty.
