Assassin vs Yellow Rabbit Snails


I'm thinking about getting a couple of Assassin Snails to control the little snail out break in my Cardinal shrimp tank. However I have 1 big and 2 small yellow rabbits snails. Are they in any danger from the assassin snails?

I would think any size snail could be in danger. I believe assassin snail will catch whatever they can and eat as much and leave the rest.

There are other methods such as baiting or trapping. Assassin snails have also been known to eat shrimp if they run out of snails to eat
