Than you shopuld probably remove everything in the tank, clean it...and you should get rid of the plant that got the snails (or if you want the plant, than you should clean the leaves, and roots, and remove the soil)

You have live plants in there? I also had snails in my tad set up. They come from the plants. I left them in there and didnt seem to bother the tads.

how big are theses tiny bugs, if they are 2-4mm in size they are probably springtails or collembolas, which eat frog feaces and decaying plant matter, they will not harm your frogs. a good way to tell if they are, is to put them into water if the float with an air bubble kinda thing around them then they are springtails or collembolas.

but if they look like snails, they are snails. i wouldn't worry about it.
