do I leave the snails??

I have a 10 gal planted community tank.
1 black mollie
2 cherry barbs
2 danios
10 1/2 inch red cherry shrimp

My cherry shrimp arrived today, and there are some snails also. Is this ok? Or are they going to wreak havoc on my tank and plants and need to be removed> Any info would be appreciated.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Just wanted to mention, don't get too attached to your shrimp.

Your fish (especially the molly) toll swallow them whole. Plus, something tells me you didn't research your fish species on your own, since many of them are only healthy if kept in a group......
