And yes, snails are useful unless they give you problems with live plants.
What do the snails do if the poop gets mixed in with the rotting plants and food?I dont see snails passing up a free meal.My snail doesnt eat my live plants.He cleans them.

Consider the needs of your fish before acting on your desires.

ya fairly certain that many snail species will eat anything that has any nutritional value left in them at all, so if partially digested stuff in the form of fish poo is lying about, you can probably expect it to be "reprocessed" by the snails.
