Snail in my tank, idk where he came from

A snail is on the side of my tank....I never bought a snail. Should i kill him or let him live? Will he cause harm to my fish, and through off my tank?

Prop came in with plants you bought.
No I'd not kill it, they are very beneficial lil helpers that help to keep your tank clean. And no they will not harm you fish (depending on what fish you have the fish may eat it thou).

Yea they're good at keeping all the lil cracks clean and sifting through your gravel etc or in your case, they're good live foods

Same thing happened to me as I'm sure to a lot of fishkeepers out there. They will multiply quickly though so you gotta watch out... my tank's already got 10+ in there and I've only had it for 3 months!

My advice would be to just watch their numbers as they can just sprial out of control in a short space of time.
