Give your plants a 5 min bath in weak bleach, this will destroy any snail egg that can be transfered to the new tank.

5-10ml in 1/2 lts of water, soak the planesplants for 5 min and then wash and soak for another 5 min in plain water. you can alternatively use potassium permanganate too instead of bleach.

Will Potasium Permanganet damage the moss?

Some plants are sensitive to Potasium permangnate like as Vals, Crypts. But I thought it will not effect mosses.
