Help Identify these snails please

The majority of my plants came from tissue culture, although about a month ago I purchased some Hornwort. I visually noticed tiny snails on the plants before placing them in my tank, and I honestly thought they would just die off, however, it appears that some are dying and a few are getting larger. I don't mind having them inside my tank at all, however, I'd like to know what species they are. My initial thoughts are either Nerite or Mystery. They have been leaving egg sacks like crazy. I have never personally seen any hatch but I've noticed more tiny snails crawling around. I'm sorry if the pictures are not good quality. I can bring out the DSLR if need be.

They're just your average/typical bladder snails, nothing to be concerned about! They are often mistakenly called pond snails, but pond snails are actually quite different.

Thank you, I was actually looking to introduce a snail that I could breed and potentially sell as a feeder/cleaner and these will do just fine. And they were free.

I wouldn't count on selling to many of them FYI

True, it's hard enough to sell fancy snails.
