What Are These Snails?

Can anyone help me ID these snails are? I've found about six small snails like these recently in my tank. I've added some plants into the tank about 2 weeks ago so I guess this is how I introduced them? I never had any snails in my tank before. It's a freshwater tank with guppies.

Many thanks,
Ashely

Some people consider them pests. I'd keep them.

They're a great clean-up crew, and will eat most stuff in the tank - algae, uneaten food, dead/dying plant matter, biofilm, etc... they WILL breed out of control if you're overfeeding, but I don't find it to be a problem even with moderately heavy feedings.

Thanks so much for all your help! I think I'll keep them as I've been thinking to add a couple of snails for cleaning.
