Will Mystery Snails uproot plants?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am wanting to get some mystery snails, but have a pretty heavy planted tank. The two plants I am worried about is my dwarf sag and pogo. They are all well-rooted. Will they be ok or will the snails uproot it?

I have assassin snails which are big time diggers. When replanting I have to strategically trim the leaves off plants in the shape of tiny barbs else I find the plants floating. Its not bad with large stems but with small stuff (s. repens, crypy parva) it can be challenging. 

Edit: At first I thought the plants were uprooting themselves, it took me awhile to figure this "trick" out.
