If you want snails in your tank and want them to work for you too. Look for Nerite Snails. They come in many beautiful varieties. They do not reproduce in freshwater or harm plants! They are the go to snail for any aquarium IMO. And yes ramshorn are a pain and you should get rid of them as soon as you can, as everyone has explained. They reproduce asexually (cuz thats the way snails like it) and for that reason one will mean many.
Another snail to look into is the Malaysian Trumpet Snails (MTS) they will reproduce a lot, but are not destructive to a tank or plants (as far as I have heard. I have cyrpts and are doing well). I started with one or two and probably have at least a hundred. The tank is only about 8 months old, so they will explode in population.
