What kind of snail is this?

Mustangjenni

I found a snail in my main community tank. Haven’t added anything to it for a couple months. I had some bladder snails in there, but haven’t seen any for a while and my mystery snail may have eaten them all. But this is no bladder snail.
I also found in my grow-out tank, this little guy. Is it a ramshorn? Baby Mystery? Anyone know?

Ramshorn - I love them! He looks a good two or three weeks old, and I know the eggs can incubate for over a month - he could have come in on something two months ago.

Good to know! Will these guys eat my healthy plants or just debris like the mystery snail?

They are good cleaners. They won't eat the plants at all.
