If you enlarge the pic and look sideways you can see the whorls that pond snails don't have. I was gonna post a pic of mine but I don't know how.

If you pick him up and turn him upside down to where he pulls his body in his shell, if he has a door he pulls shut he is a mystery snail. If you can still see his body at all it is a pond snail.

These snails reproduce like crazy! But the danios have been eating all the small ones. So now on the big ones survive
