Snail ID please

Hello all,
Getting back into having fish for the first time in 10 years.

I'm a couple of weeks into cycling my Blue Haven 70L D shape aquarium, and will ultimately just put a few small fish in it. I've put a few plants in there and it seems some snails have hitchhiked along, and are hiding out in my big Uboat decoration. I saw some eggs in clear film/goo, which i removed.

For the past week or so, I thought there was only 1 of these, but today i discovered that there are at least two plus a smaller one. Are these Physa Spec snails?








Then today i saw this snail, what is this?







Either type worth keeping?

thanks

The top snail maybe a pond snail/bladder snail? The second one is a ramshorn snail. The first one I wouldn't worry about. They will do more good them harm (won't eat plants). The ramshorn may or may not eat plants so might want to watch that one. I have tones of bladder snails in my tank and have never seen them eat my plants. Also had one ramshorn and didn't notice it eating my plants either tho he was been MIA for awhile now soo not sure what happen to him.
