Nerita Snail in Freshwater?!?!?!

Hi everyone. So, I have a few olive neritas and plenty of trumpets. The other day I looked in my filter and it looked like it had a big clear orange egg in it. Looking closer I noticed it was a baby snail, but it's unlikely any snail I've seen before. Since then its been growing, its a little less clear/orange, and it now has a spot on the side just like the olive's. I thought that it was impossible to breed neritas in freshwater, but this really does look like one. Has anyone heard of this? Here is a crappy picture and I'll keep you all updated.

It looks like a Ramshorn snail to me.
