    So I found a couple of these little guys already and squished them since I’m pretty sure they’re bladders but since my tank is so new. Just under a month. I’m not sure if these guys might be baby pond snails. From what Ive researched though since these guys have super skinny antennae that I think are pretty long for their size, to me they look like bladders. I really don’t want bladders but pond snails I might consider.

    It’s my index finger in that picture. Their shells look like the tip of the spiral has colour right now but seems almost see through when you get near the snails body. A little bit of a spiral. Some skinny antennae.

    They don't look like bladder snails to me, pond snails seem more accurate for that picture and description.

    Looks to be a bladder snail. Bladder snails have shells that spiral to the left and skinny antennae while pond snails have the opposite.
