Are these trapdoor snails?

    I was getting a few algae covered rocks from my pond for my nerites to eat, then I noticed little tiny snails on them! I think they are trapdoor snails... but I'm not sure. If so, are they ok to be in aquariums (I might have accidentally introduced them into my tank...)?

    They're black and REALLY tiny.

    Thanks :) hopefully if I accidentally introduced one in the tank, they won't eat all my plants >.< they're really tiny and cute though. I'll put them back in the pond tomorrow :D

    Common myth... I own a group that i am trying to breed for my assassins... they won't touch my live healthy plants but will eat the sick and dead ones...

    Oh okay, thanks :). I've never seen big ones in my pond actually, just these small ones. My goldfish probably ate them haha.. Actually I might try to raise these 3 babies in my fry tank :)

    No Traps there, just bladder snails. Harmless mostly.
