I personally like snails. They are benificial by eating algea, dieing plant matter & uneaten food. Unless they are plague portions then I would leave them be. If you do not over feed then their numbers will not get out of hand.

Like others have said, its a personal preference. I introduced red ramshorns to my tank for interest and to be a mini clean-up crew, and I've found that as the generations go by, my red ramshorns are slowly becoming orange and yellow ramshorns. I guess they have some dominant yellow genes...

The only negative, Id say, is that they may be hard to eradicate if the population explodes, and that they do eat some plants. But in general, I personally enjoy their presence.
