Help! Please

I did not know where I can post this but, I got live plants from petco a while back and I just noticed that i currently have 5 snails now. I never had them before and I heard that there are some bad kind out there. I think they came with those plant.
My question is will they hurt my tank or help my tank
I have a 10 gal tank with 1 female betta and a chines sucker fish.

They're probably just common pond snails and won't be harmful. Can you get a picture of them?

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Can drop algae wafer in net, and then lay the net on the bottom of the tank and wait for the snail's to enter.Then just remove the net with snail's inside.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.

you can try to net them and put them i a tupperware to take to your pet store before they breed. Also, CAE get way too big to live in a 10 gallon long-term.
