A picture is really a must for snail ID. I would keep it in the hospital tank until you know what it is, as some species of snails will eat your plants and others won't.

If it came as a hitchhiker, odds are that it's a pond snail, ramshorn, or trumpet snail. Pond snails are fairly plain looking...hard to describe, really. Ramshorns have shells that are disc-shaped and spiral around as you look at them from the side, like one of those old-fashioned spiral lollipops. Trumpet snails have cone-shaped shells. But, like I said, a real species ID is impossible without a picture.
