That fungusis beneficial formyfish! I don't want to share it with snails!I love my MTS. they helped clear up the fungus that grows on new driftwood, at night time an army of them come out and eat any remaining food in the tank. they help aerate my sand and fertilize my soil as they break down organic material.#
MTS have become an important species in my aquarium.
I loved having MTS in my tanks especially the sand tanks. The Shellie tank sand was a little deeper than normal and the MTS kept it loose and clean.
If you get too many it's really easy to mash them against the tank wall to break their shell. The other fish will clean them right up.
Not sure if we have different species of if may be that I have hard water so therefore bolstering their shells, but my MTS have very hard shells that can't be smushed so easily. I can do this easily with pond / bladder snails, but the MTS seem much more durable.
While they are not needed by any means, many people with planted tanks recommend them. I certainly like them. Never been a problem for me as I am stingy with the food.

Malaysian Trumpet Snails and Planarians are two different critters. There is no comparison.post #33 was your answer. I thought people who considered them pests would fine it interesting.
