Tiny snails in my tank

This morning I found two tiny snails in the tank with my Betta fish, they must have come from the plants I have placed in the tank, is this harmful to my fish?

They most likely came off of the plant. I wouldn't call the snails harmful exactly, however they can reproduce and become a pest.

Yes, you may want to try and get rid of them as quickly as you can. If they start to multiply, removal can get a lot more difficult.

They will multiply like crazy and over-run the tank, so I would remove them if I were you. Also take any plants and feel for egg-sacs. They're small and transparent, but they'll feel like jelly.
