So as I知 getting more interested in planted tanks, I知 learning about the possibility of snails... I知 not a fan of them at all and my gf hates them.. she def has a phobia lol. Is it even possible to have a planted tank without getting snails????

Sure. Buy them from Petco or PetSmart in the containers. They're guaranteed snail free.

And this is a stupid question, can snails just pop up over time or do they only come with the plants when you buy them ?

Many people believe there is a snail fairy that drops the little buggers in our tanks.

I've never got a snail off the plants in the plastic containers that say snail free. Like goatnad was saying, do a bleach dip.
