Question What are these snails?

Not sure how they arrived in my tank, but they have multiplied. They haven't grown very much, and are still about the size of grains of rice. I belive them to be ramshorn snails, but I am not sure. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

did you add in any live plants? Some snails like to hitchhike on plants

Yep, ramshorns.
A few found their way into my tank with a fish being added o.o the eggs can get everywhere.
I just squished em cuz they were so tiny still.
