Extremely cheap Nerite snails?

I got a snail from an Asian market for my Mantis shrimp last night. I think the price was 2.99 for 1 pound. The snail looks like Nerite snails but im not sure yet. Here are some pictures





Anyone can ID?

Any chance of a few other pictures? I'm not sure what type of snail you have here but it doesn't look like any variety of nerite I've seen before. The shell shape seems wrong to me. That doesn't make it not one, just not one I'm familiar with.

I have nerites, but they don't look like that. My first thought was a Nassarius Snail, but the coloring of the shell is not right. It looks kind of like a Zebra Nerita Snail, but I believe those are freshwater.
