Hatched Horned Nerite Snail in Freshwater

Have noticed a lot of eggs from my Horned Nerites, though was a bit surprised to see this today. Read that they don't hatch in freshwater.



Anyone have this happen before? Would love for him to survive to adulthood. Did I misidentify this creature?

Thanks ahead.

I can't say I know what young horned nerite snails look like, but freshwater limpets do tend to be quite common in planted tanks...

from what I read on nerite snails, you can't watch them in freshwater. they have to be laid in saltwater and then transitioned back to fresh. its a bit of a process but if you don't believe me look up some guides on how to hatch them

I'm also skeptical that it is a Nerite snail; it is more likely to be a limpet

Thanks for all of the replies. Can't seem to find them anymore though assuming it isn't a nerite snail.
