How big are they? The only thing that does not fit the nerite ID is babies. They could also be pond snail but I have seen striped ones like that.

the babies are tiny ,to small to see what they are really ,but they seem to be a light brown and a different shape from the adult 1..more pointed and twisty ,but cant be sure as they are minute .the adult is 1and half cm max...

I'm thinking the little ones are pond snails and the big one is a nerite.

His other snails are Malaysian trumpet snails.
