the babies are tiny ,to small to see what they are really ,but they seem to be a light brown and a different shape from the adult 1..more pointed and twisty ,but cant be sure as they are minute .the adult is 1and half cm max...

I'm thinking the little ones are pond snails and the big one is a nerite.
