help! Snails in tank

Hi I am new to this forum. can anyone tell me how I have managed to get baby snails in my tank?
I have 2 red spotted snails that have been in the tank for about 3 months and I believe that they only breed in brackish water. However I have just discovered several baby snails. Is this possible?

Yes it is possible. Any plants in the tank? Snails can get prolific, and eggs can easily hitchhike in on plants or other stuff that was in an established tank that has snails.
