Snails

Hi all

I recently moved and managed to move my tank without stripping it completly but i lost my plants which i have now replaced but i have now noticed that i have lots of odd snails crawling about the gravel.
They range from 1/2 inch to 2inches in lenghth and are conical in shape and for snails they shift quite fast.
The question i have is firstly will they attack my boys as they moved the gravel about?
Secondly should i get rid of them and if so how do i do it??

Thanks in advance
