HELP! Found snail and not sure what is

BristlenoseCatfish

good evening
I was watching my fish this evening when I noticed a small orange snail on the glass of my tank, I took a picture but unfortunately it disappeared but than I noticed multiple more, this does not make any sense as no new plants/fish have been added for over 5 weeks(I’m in the lockdown)

Does anyone know what type of snail this is? (Photo attached) What do you recommend I do?

Hard to tell from the pic but could be a ramshorn snail.
Ok thanks, what do you recommend I do?

Yes it is a ramshorn and its up to you what you do, I dont mind them but I need to keep them in check or they will over run in time,

They reproduce alot. They never go into lockdown :). You'll know if your overfeeding your fish when the snail population explodes.

I have red ones in one of my tanks. They don't harm anything and the tank is always clean.

What color is it? I wonder if its a mini or regular size one? Kinda shaped like a mini one.

Haha, ok thanks, I was extremely worried at first but now I think I’m going to give them a chance!
