Snails?

Does anyone know what type of snails these are? Sorry Iím tried my best to get the best photos I could. I didnít have any till about week after planting some cabomba I got from my LFS. I first had two now it looks like there are 3 tiny baby ones. So 5 in totalÖ this is in my 10G cherry shrimp tank and wanna know if they are bad for the tank and two how to manage amount as i donít know how they even began to have more.

They look like pond snails from here. Try googling them and hitting 'images' to see if anything matches. If that's what they are, they're good scavengers for algae, dead plant matter, and leftover food. But they do reproduce a lot and can get out of hand. The better fed they are, the more pond snails reproduce.

The thin antennas pretty much to the head bladder snail, more triangle where it attaches to the head is a pond snail.

Awesome thanks for the info. I think they are more the bladder snail. Should I remove or let beÖ? I was more using the tank as a cherry shrimp breeder so wasnít prepared to have these hitchhikers join lol

They are good cleaners. It's personal preference. You might find more hatch out in the future. I like having a few snails in my tanks, more like a little (made up)
natural world to watch.

If you have an outdoor planted bowl rhat would be a good place.
If you could move them out of your breeding project tank. And if you did want a snail cleaner option, you might want a more colorful choice.

Pond jar window garden, or squish and feed fish.

Overfeeding would be a primary factor in dreaded population explosions.
