What snails are these??

Corycatz

I found several of these snails hanging around in my glass, do you know what type they are or if they’re pests? Btw I think they came from either my java or hornwort plants I recently added.

Bladder snails. Considered a pest. But I like them, if you don't overfeed you can control their population.

Alright, do you know how often they breed or good ways to get rid of them? Thanks

Assassin snails is a very good way and very often, they have clutches of anywhere from 5-200. Don’t over feed and they won’t repopulate

Bladder Snails. They breed prolifically so long as their food supply allows it.
They eat algae but their population won't get out of control without fish food to supplement their diet.
If you have a large enough fish tank you could introduce an Assassin as part of population control and it shouldn't wipe them out.

Yup, I have a handful in my tank and I don’t mind them at all. They do reproduce asexually though, so as others have mentioned, try to not over feed
