Sorry for the bad pics, it’s really small. Friend or foe? I have Nerites (just put in yesterday). I’ll keep if they’re Nerite or Mystery or something not too prolific. Don’t want any pest snails though.

    If it bred in freshwater it's probably something you dont want since nerites can't do that. I don't remember if mystery's do though

    That's definately a Ramshorn, looking at the shell shape in the last pic especially. Mysterys do in fact breed in freshwater but the baby snails do not have that pronounced flat spiral on one side as babies. They're generally more rounded. Baby Ramshorns do have a rounded side in my experience, which can confuse things, but it's definately a Ramshorn.
