Snail Identification

I'm trying to identify this snail:

I used to have it many years ago and now that I'm getting back into the hobby I really would like to get some again, but first I need to figure out what they were so I can find someone with them.

They behaved very similar to normal Malaysian Trumpet Snails but seemed to stay smaller and weren't as fast at breeding, at least for me.

I'm not exactly what those are, as the picture is very hard to see. A good alternative to MTS is a spiky MTS or Melanoides granifera. But mine breed just a TAD less quickly then a MTS. I actually am growing very fond of my Marsh Pond Snails (Lymnaea palustris). They are very slow to breed, and very cute! They do not aerate the soil however.
