I am about to start salting my tank for ich and I happened to think about my snails, the old salt on a slug = one dead shrivled slug. I am hoping I don't brine my snails ??

Honestly, I think yes, it is not good for snails. Can you put them in another tank? Or, oh, I guess they might have ick too? I was hoping Debra would see this, hopefully she will come along shortly.

Actually, according to this post snails do not get ick.

So, I would try and get them a temporary place if it was me.
Type snails salt into search, I found more articles.

In one article it states that it is important to dissolve the salt in water before putting it in the tank. Thereby being safer for other fish (cories) as well as snails. I would think that would be a given. But, ya never know.

Sarcasm is just one more service we offer.

You really need to move them to another tank while you treat the fish. It is the safe thing to do and you won't have to worry about them.
