Yes ,that might be what they're selling (assasin snails) they look somewhat similar except for color.
Lady at fish store gave me around a dozen of the malaysian trumpet snails some fifteen years ago and i recall her telling me to be careful what you ask for.
Didn't take long for me to get hip with what she was saying.
I have drained tank's and placed gravel in tubs .bucket's for use several month's later in some cases and when pouring the stored gravel into the tanks,,found that some of these snails survived with just a tiny amount of moisture in the bottom of the tub/ bucket.
They are near impervious to all medications. But copper based meds, and soft water will do them in .
