What kind of snail is this?

sydrc

i found this snail in my tank and it doesn’t look like my bladder or ramshorns. it looks like a mystery snail and it’s possible it could be but confusing if it is. i had mystery snails in there for a very short period of time before i took them out and treated the tank with meds. i haven’t seen any egg clutches and still don’t see anything. but i don’t know what else this snail could have come from.

Looks to be a Bladder snail.

Are you sure you had mystery snails? Look up Japanese trap door snails and compare to your mysteries. That looks like a baby trap door to me. They give birth to live babies from time to time.

all of my bladder snails’ shells twist behind them, this one goes to the side. that’s why i’m confused

Just adding some photos of my own trap door snails and their tiny new born babies to compare them to.

It possible a small clutch of mystery eggs went unnoticed behind the filter or something.
