Flat round aquatic snail identification.

So I have had a couple if these snails show up in my tank. Dose anyone know what they are and anything about them?

They have small antenna simular to a pond snail, dark bodies, and their shell always lays flat to the surface. So far I have only sold them on this one anubias plant over the past several days. Click image for larger version

My guess would be planorbis carinatus.

I have read these can multiply very quickly. Especially if there is lots of tasty food.

I had these in a small pond once. Very small and they carried the shell”flat”. Brought some indoors, however, they never really prospered. Tank already had healthy populations of rams horn, pond, and trumpet snails.
