So as the thread mentions my Fluval FX5 is now infested with pond snails (thank you LFS), it is not causing any harm to my RES or harming the flow of the tank but I wonder if there is any safe way to get rid of them short of a new canister.

Any one else have experience with this?

3 Leopard Geckos - Gizmo, Snow and Boo

I think if you can dry everything out for several days, you should be good. Their eggs are almost clear and really hard to spot.
