Here are photos of the ones mentioned, and another. Top left, 4 Malaysian LB, top right, pond/bladder snail, lower the ramshorn snail.
this was helpful in identifying the type of snail outbreak i have. they are the rams horn snail and i have no clue where they came from but they are cool. i keep seeing little ones. they dont get big but i think i keep finding eggs on my glass. i love me some snails. they are fun to watch!
