Do you have any live plants in your tank? They usually hitch rides on them, if not, I'm just as lost as you

So I took the snail out of the tank along with a little bit of water, put it in a 1/2 gallon view tank to get better pictures. On the Iphone it's always nice and bright but when i send it to my email so I can download it to the computer it gets a little darker. So I did a little bit of editing from my cameras software. Here's a few pics. Can you tell me what kind of snail it is?

It is a Ramshorn. You won't need to feed it. It will eat the algae, dead plant material and leftover fish food.

You probably have more than one and they will have babies. The more food they have the more babies they make. I would not purposely feed them.
