I find this snail about three days ago in my aquarium today was the first day I saw him again. I have no clue what it is.

Ramshorn snail I think judging by the second picture down.
I have lots in my pond, they are very beautiful :)
But be careful, they are asexual, which means they can reproduce with themselves and swarm the aquarium!
