Snail ID?

Found this guy in my 20 gallon today. I'm guessing he snuck in on a plant. What kind of snail is it? He is only about 4mm long. Wondering if I should keep him or not.

Ramshorn snail. I enjoy them, but many people don't. If you like them they come in different shades, red blue leopard.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

Thanks, I think I'll keep him and see what happens.

Keep him or ditch him, but you probably have others in your tank that you haven't seen yet. They reproduce pretty quickly.

They're terrific cleaners. Maybe the best in freshwater aquaria.

Their populations won't get out-of-control unless you overfeed or there's an abundant food source.
