Is it common to also quarantine plants?  Or do you just rinse them in
some solution?   I'm not worried about snails, in fact I currently 
hope for snails.  But that'll change if they suddenly take over my tank.

Regarding quarantine for fish, how long should they be in quarantine?  
And is there any trick to keeping the quarantine tank cycled when there
are no fish in it?   Is it a bad idea to keep plants in the quarantine
tank?  I'd like to use it for keeping "spare" clippings and plants
after a pruning session.
