Does anyone here know what snail species this is? it's my first time seeing it. the seller didn't put any description on the snail species and when I asked they don't know either. it's a freshwater snail. I'm from Indonesia if that helps

Take this with a grain of salt. I’ve never seen a freshwater snail like that. I think it’s a saltwater type
How big is it?

Looks like spike tail (malaysian) trumpet snails to me.

These look like Thiara winteri.

That is a similar species, but their spikes aren't quite as defined as these.

They're cool looking, whatever they are!

If it's a species that you aren't certain of, watch their behaviour, especially when it comes to whether or not they're eating plants.
