Has anyone heard of these snails?

I've purchased some snails out of curiosity but I cannot find any information regarding them. They are listed as "INDIAN ZEBRA SNAILS - BELLAMYA BENGALENSIS". Searches turn up a few scientific papers but that is all. They seem to eat algae and don't seem to bother plants so I don't mind having them in my tank, I find them quite interesting to be honest.
Has anyone heard of them before?
