Hi, try this site for hitch-hiker id.
If the snail you have are pyram snails then some feed on other snails and some feed on clams. I would certainly want a positive id on them before putting either of the above in. If it is them I don't think they eat algae though. I had an outbreak of these for a while and had to scrub my clam every other day for weeks to get rid of them. Got there in the end but it was hard work.
If you don't have a food source for them in your tank though, they will die out naturally.
