Ramshorn snail I think judging by the second picture down.
I have lots in my pond, they are very beautiful :)
But be careful, they are asexual, which means they can reproduce with themselves and swarm the aquarium!

If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".
