What kind of snail is this?

What kind of snail is this? I really like it but I have neglected my tank and it's been acting weird lately, just staying in the same spot and circling around. I also had a horned nerite die. I've begun doing water changes to try to repair the damage. The other creatures seem mostly okay. Just some snails acting weird.

Malaysian Trumpet Snail - They are good for the tank. Will help to aerate and clean the substrate.

My other MTS are all pale with thinner shells but this one has a really pretty color and pattern. Same species?

Maybe a small/young rabbit snail? What does the body look like?

Same genus, but there's a bunch of Melaniodes species that get called "Malaysian Trumpet Snails".

M. tuberculata is a more common one that fits that description

92% of all statistics are made up on the spot.
