Question Snail Identification help

So I got an anacharis plant a month or so ago for a biology experiment. After the experiment, I decided to keep it. (Just the plant floating in a glass jar) I recently discovered lots of snails in it. (Aparently I'm not very observant) I want to keep them to study, so I'm trying to identify them. I haven't been able to yet. Can anyone help?
They are very small, mostly opaque dark brown, but there are some with clear shells and spots. I put some spinach in, and the snails with the clear shells liked it.
