I cannot understand the fear over snails that so many write about. I have dozens of these (bladder snails) in my tanks, and hundreds of Malaysian livebearing snails. I consider them a gift from nature, and I am glad they are there.
Snails eat stuff that nothing else, including your filter, can handle, and prevent biological issues. They also eat algae, though minimally. These types do not eat plants. They are an important part of a natural ecosystem.
Be thankful; your aquarium is the better for having them.
