    The safest Way to add Snail to a CO² planted Aquarium is: Dont add any!

    if you worried

    Put it in a bowl next to the tank and over 30 mins add small amounts of tank water via piece of airline etc.

    Then place in your tank the right way up should be fine.

    just do the same thing you do for fish and they will be fine. make sure they have plenty of food and wont be attacked.
