Seeing them like that I think as InvertPlanet said, they look like MTS.

Melanoides tuberculata

10g Fry / Hospital / QT tank (as needed)

75g Saltwater Reef, Ocellaris Clownfish, Lyretail Antias (baby), Lemon damsel, Longtail Fairy Wrasse, purple dottyback, snails, crabs and a few LPS corals.

220g Still sitting empty (come on Lottery I need the numbers to come up!)

Some notes (in case they help):

These do not seem to burrow at all.
They love climbing walls.
No signs of breathing from the surface (like an apple snail would).
They will nibble plants.
Each has a gutter along their right side.
May be live bearing? I've seen what looks like labor IMO, though none have grown into snails.

I thought that MTS never got above 1" in length? Mine are more like 2" each.

I have a huge colony of Malaysian trumpet snails in my tank. None of mine looking that. LoL close but the coloring is different. I don't thinking yours are MTS but could be wrong.

Not MTS. The only one that resembles them is the Faunus ater. I've kept a couple of aters before.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Very good Lupin!! Well done!

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

It helps if you actually have experience collecting snails especially when your country is an archipelago. I asked the help of several local hobbyists to collect dozens of different freshwater snails for me. Was difficult identifying them so I enlisted help from two local conchologists base in Davao. Was very disappointed they barely responded after a few weeks so I made a lot of reseaech and was able to identify what I had properly. Ah good times.
