Good snail? Bad snail?

I would love a little help ID this hitchhiker. Does it look like a "I'm going to eat holes in your plants" snail or a "your plants aren't on my menu" snail?

Bladder Snail. Won't eat your plants.

They're great if you don't overfeed. Keep things clean, eat leftovers, etc.

Bladder Snails and Pond Snails aren't the same.

Am on with my phone right now, so can't dig up the link. But if you search around the forum a bit, you'll see photos comparing the two.
