snail things? please help :/

I just started noticing small snails in my tank like babies. I do have 4 snails in my tank but im not sure if i need to start sucking the small ones out. They look exactly like a snail but have no shell and i thought that snails always had shells. Do I need to get these out? and how? is there anything that will eat them for me? thanks!

Google stomatella snail and see what comes up, that's probably what you have in your tank.

They're a good snail to have and will certainly reproduce in your tank

There is a pyramid snail that is bad they are very little.
Indo Pacific Snails check out and see what you can find on that list.
