I'm pretty sure that that is not a ramshorn... Ramshorns will have a very evenly spiraled circular shell with a smaller opening in the shell.

definitely not an assassin. I'm more inclined towards a nerite than anything...

here's my own horned nerite for reference...

I think you are right! I fished him out and got another pic- he moves pretty quick for a snail if that helps haha. And has lil black spots...
