Pond/bladder shells spiral out to a point behind the snail. Ramshorn shells are basically flat spirals that place the center point of the spiral directly above the snail's body.

Of course, if that snail is too small to see the shape of the shell, no one's going to be able to ID it. :)

Looks like a mini ramshorn. They are really flat like a disc and stay very small, like 2mm. I have them in most of my shrimp tanks and don't mind them at all. If you have a decent population of MTSs, the MTSs will outcompete them for food. Perfect dwarf puffer food.

Mine isn't flat from the top view its quite roundish looking. So I'm guessing its a baby ramshorn.

never seen answer on how long til they hatch. Varies with temp, water parameters and age. So can't be positive. With Mystery snails(P. Diffusa) it takes about 4-6 weeks. So maybe it be the same??

Glad you enjoy the snails :)
