I cant see very clearly but they look like pond /bladder snails. Their shells grow with them, they clean up left over food so they dont really need special food for them. But if you over feed they multiply pretty quickly and can become a problem, a few people dont like them as you can end up with too many
They are 1 kind off snail I wont keep.

Major pest snail. If overfed theyll run rampant. Send them to my puffer processing plant.
