Keep seeing these small snails popping up look like mts but I notice that the middle looks yellow so I'm confused, I haven't had assassin long and seeing these. What are there?

Not assassins, I’d say mts.
Edit...after a zoom, I’m leaning toward pond snail maybe?

They don't exactly look like either, but I would lean towards mts as well.

MTS generally have longer and skinnier shells. I have never had assassin snails so I don't know exactly what they look like. But if they aren't assassins, they're probably just some type of pest snail similar to MTS.

Yeah, after looking at some of my mts around the same size they are definitely not that. I've never seen assassin that small but if you have them in your tank they might be. They have the right shell shape and yellowish band, but the structure looks more like a pond or bladder snail, like not near as rigid as either a mts or an assassin snail.
