New Snail Identification w/ Picture

Hey all,

My friend just gave these two snails to me today. I need help identifying them! I'm mainly looking to find out if they are safe for plants or not because I have a lush green ball of java moss that I am not looking to get rid of anytime soon!

Thanks in advance!

P.S. - If this is in the wrong forum, please move to the correct one.
