Moss ball with legs.

I tried searching snails of NY on google and noting I got was helpful. All I found was something about invasive apple snails.

Some people on applesnail.net said they are probably some form of viviparidae, they are filter feeders and to feed them algae. I tried putting in a sinking algae waffer last night but its still there.
should I set up the 15 gallon storage tub and stick the 20G filter in it so they get a current?
I would put one in my 10G but they are awfully big and its divided 3 ways - but there is a filter and therefor a current - plus brown algae if they eat that?

Would the babies be safe with bettas? They are about the size of a pea. and im thinking they would poop less then their moss ball parents.

I woke up today and found 6 babies

We have trapdoors around here and they get huge, think of a medium soft serve ice cream cones swirl, if you keep the babys in tanks they should stay smaller because of the food supply, they'll eat pretty much anything they can find and I've seen them on the side of my native tank "hopefully" eating algae if you keep the large ones in your tanks eventually all that algae on their shells will come off

And yay! I just spotted one of my shrimp and hes looking nice and red

the babies are alot smaller in my tank but the ones i put in my sisters tank are about the size of a quarter already. Er, she..lets just say she is bad at fishkeeping and water matience.

The adults I took look like a giant moss ball. I love it when they climb up the walls of the tank.
