Help identifying Snail


I need help identifying the snail in the picture below. Are they plant eaters? Should I be concerned?

Looks like a Malaysian Trumpet Snail to me. A good thing to have in a planted tank.

Be happy.

They usually help aerate the substrate and eat leftovers!

Yeah its a mts, the one complaint I have about them is that they level out your slope, so if you have a dcent slope, expect it to end up flat.
