vermetid snails

We have a lot of vermetid snails on several rocks. Should we leave them alone, or remove them somehow?

Crush with hemostats or heavy tweezers, super glue the openings or bumblebee snails.

Some people say they are harmless. In a fish only tank 100% fine. The ones I ended up with were huge and irritated corals to death. Super gluing them shut was the only way I got in front of the infestation.
