I think mystery snails are more fun! You have to make sure to feed them, they're not really algae cleaner's. Cana snail's eat live plants! So not good in planted tanks Lol i also have tylos and really like those they're bio load is not as big as mystery snails.

Yeah the shells are sort of the same shape. I really like these guy's they do better on sand, I've got a couple in my shrimp tank as Gonzo evicted them! Cool to watch. I also have a lava snail his body is red and black he likes the algae! Don't have a picture of him though I'll have to take one in the morning.
