Quick, what kind of snail is this?

In the past I've been diligent about culling potential pest snails that came in on plants. I found this one crawling on the walls of my tank today and I hesitated because he's quite round, and I'm wondering if maybe he's a baby mystery snail.

I have two mystery snails, I'm bad at sexing them, but it definitely looked like they mated at one point. I don't see any egg clutches, but I thought I would see if anybody had any input.

Thanks!

Sorry it's hard to get a good photo of a tiny translucent being.

One ramshorn snail by itself wont multiply on its own, they dont clone themselves. However if you find another one then yes, they will reproduce.



mystery snails will lay huge egg clutches out of the water- if you had them, you would not miss it.

I thought it was only mysteries that reproduced with two sexes. Even if that's the case I would rather not risk an infestation since I can't really take care of the pest snails without affecting the other guys.
