Need some fast advice

Hello everyone! I am currently acclimating my new snails and hermits and will be placing them into my tank within the hour. I just wanted to know the best way to get them from the acclimation bucket into the tank. I know that you are not supposed to put any water from the acclimation bucket into the tank, but I noticed when I was removing them from the plastic bags that they were sticking to the side and I had some difficulty getting them out of the bag. Should I just place them into the tank by hand using my handling gloves? Any help is appreciated!

By the time you are done acclimating them it should mostly be your tank water anyway. I would just add them by hand if it was me.

just use some gentle tugging and they will eventually "let go" of the bag/container.
