Snails will eat anything they can get their mouths on from detritus, to slow moving amphibians. While I would not worry too much about the snails and your tadpoles, I personally detest live snails in my tanks.

Daphnia are filter feeders that eat microscopic plankton and are no threat to anything larger than bacteria and protists.

Hello NewtLover,
I think snails can only dangerous for the first four days after hatching when the tadpoles are hanging around the whole tank like commatas or semicolons. Although it's related to the snail species.
