Snail ID

I'm still familiarizing myself with freshwater invertebrates. I have what I believe to be some kind of bladder snail (family Physidae). It's about a centimeter long, highly resilient—it is surviving the cycling which at one point ammonia exceeded 4 ppm. Pretty little fella up close, and there are two that I noticed so far. I would appreciate if someone could confirm or correct me on this. Thanks!

Thanks! It helps when I could stabilize the camera by pressing the lens hood against the tank.
