I was battling snails and worms in that tank for weeks before I decided to move the inhabitants for a bit and completely re-do the entire cage. Don't wild collect! It's more trouble then it's worth!
Yeah I wound up with snails just from plant cuttings I bought from someone. Though somehow they've all vanished which is great lol
