Does anyone know how to tell the difference between baby pond snails & baby mystery snails. I found some baby snails in one of my tanks...I know the most likely suspect is usually pond snail but just curious...they kinda look like little mystery snails but maybe not..

Mystery Snails have little trap doors on the back half of their foot right under the culr of their shell

Baby Mysteries are round, pond snails are more oblong. If you don't have adult mystery snails, I'd say they are pond snails.
