lol..they are ramshorn snails, they are somewhat of a good type of snail that will not eat your plants(unlike the unwanted pond snails)...if they grow to be the large types, then they may much on a couple of leaves, but for the most part they are good to have in yourt aquairum as they eat all the waste and decay from your leaves..they show to be the blue type as well..

Haha. Are u sure?
Mine don't grow more that 1 cm or that's what I think. I'll check them out tomorrom if I can find one they're usually on the plant leaves. These ones have no shells and they look very nasty by nasty I mean they're kind of transparent and I can like see their organs LOL.

I have the same type of snail in my tanks. I am sure they are a rams horn type. They do not get very big but they will soon explode in numbers if given the chance. I had a pair of rams that seem to keep them in check until I lost the rams. I think it might be time for a loach or two to keep them in check.
