Sounds like ramshorn snails to me, and they come in on plants.

Do they look like this?

i dont think they do any damage apart from breed like mad theres hundreds and the plants actuly seem to look better as they eat the tiny bits of alge the plecos miss theres another snal i had before which was harmless but bred like mad they were cone shaped with a very hard dark brown shell with black patterns and lived in the ground media my local aqatic center has them in EVERY tank i they refer to them as "gravel snails"what are they?
