We keep Fish, Shrimp and Snails in our plant holding aquariums to keep our systems biologically balanced and as algae free as possible for the best health to our plants. Every plant will be inspected before getting shipped out for any nuisance. We dont believe its possible to guarantee 100% snail and algae free plants unless its tissue culture plants.
