Most likely they are vermetid snails...look here before you say they aren't snails...

Look at the pic in Figure 2

What they are doing is catching small particles to eat from the water column and will reel in the nets (cobwebs) and eat what they have caught.

Nothing eats them. You may have a number of them because there is plenty of food for a large population. You might want to cut back on how much you are feeding so the fish can polish off the food in just a couple of minutes and there isn't much left for the snails to eat.
