Olive snails friend or foe?

I have 2 olive snails in my tank and at first I thought they were cool but now I am wondering. I had a percula clown disappear in my tank and thoght maybe it jumped out but now I have found it buried under my crushed coral also 2 other snails are gone just empty shells and I see my olive snail is in the process of sucking a 3rd snail out of it's shell. Could these snails be attacking other snails and fish?

Olives are predatory. While it won't attack fish, other snails, worms, and small clams are fair game.

I'd get rid of them myself...
