Definitely a Ramshorn (Planorbid), and a pretty one at that.

Not all Applesnail species eat healthy plants, by the way. P. bridgesii/diffusa don't. A. spixi may nibble a bit but not enough to do any damage. Cana Applesnails will mow plants, and Marisa Applesnails will also eat them, albeit not as relentlessly.
