Keep or leave them, they are harmless unless overfed.

I had an infestation of the ramhorn snails in my 5 gallon tank. Tried to get rid of them to no avail. SO I ended up geting an assassin snail. The brat won't eat a lot of them and I still have them in my tank. Now I have assassin babies and ram horn babies. I got a free 20 gallon added a f8 puffer fish in it and now it's food for him HAHA! pesky snails are glutens so they are food for my puffer. XD

15 gallon: 1 Pea puffer, 5 harlequin rasboras, 5 neon green Rasboras, Clown pleco, Shrimp.
10 gallon: 2 betta's and a snail
10 gallon: 1 Pea puffer, two Guppies and 6 Panda loaches and shrimp.
5 gallon: Red Cherry Shrimp and snails
5 gallon tank: WIP tank
37 gallon: 2 F8 Puffers 7 bumblebee gobies.
