What kind of pest snail is this?
 
I have a pest snail that has a round/oval part like a pond or bladder snail, but at the end of the oval instead of a spiral that sticks out as you'd see on a pond snail, the spiral-y part is flat. Does anyone know what this could be? They're not ramshorns - they do have this round/oval party instead of just a spiral.

No, it looks like this: https://www.ebay.com/itm/GREAT-POND-...-/270934525597

Only instead of the part that sticks out like a cone from the main bubble part, it's a spiral that is flat on the main bubble part. Like if you could press in the cone part and flatten it out into a spiral at the end of the round part.

I posted a picture here as well: https://www.reddit.com/r/whatsthisbu...uarium_it_has/

The spiral seems to be too flat for a bladder snail. There's no conical point.

That photo didn't really help :) I browsed through one atlas and by the description it could be:
Radix peregra
Viviparus contectus (or other Viviparus)

Both are native to Ireland (in case you brought the snail from outside), but I guess you'll be able to identify it better once it grows a bit.

Perhaps a picture of the actual snail in your tank would be best for an ID.

The pic I took is of the biggest one I could find. I have them in a cup now, hopefully they don't die and I can get a better picture when it grows.

I've been growing them in a cup and got a better picture here: https://imgur.com/a/mMyWx4B

Any idea what this is?
In the past when I've seen pond snails, they've had a spiral that sticks out, as in these pictures: https://midwestponds.com/uncategoriz...n-of-problems/
