If you google nerite snails you can find pics. There are different types such as green nerite and zebra nerite snails.

Pretty basic snails. They can breed if there's some way they can get up above the waterline to lay their eggs. They'll eat any sort of detritus in the tank but produce a decent amount of waste themselves. They should be kept in water with a pH above 7.0 and ideally with a decent KH reading. You can supplement their diet with foods rich in calcium or even calcium pills like Caltrate.

I think you're probably right. Mystery snails poop a heck of a lot.
