    Help identify snail (possible pest?)

    These snails popped up in my planted 5g shrimp tank. Guessing they came in with a plant. I see roughly 8 of them but they are small (maybe a 1/4 inch) and I have lots of plants. They seem to like to detach and float around when they want to move. They don't seem to be hurting anything but I'm pretty new to all of this and want to make sure. I do have a Zebra snail for algae in the tank that I put in there but these are much smaller.

    Sorry for the poor pictures. My phone won't focus on them when I'm too close.

    I rarely feed the tank so I guess I'm good. Gonna have to do some research on those snails. Thanks for the input.
