They're mostly still to small for me to know what they're about, food-wise. Does anyone recognize what species I'm dealing with here? And are they a danger to my Flora?

    They are just pond or bladder snails. Very common and not dangerous to the tank. Some people don't like the look of them.

    You can actually get rid of them by just adding some assassin snails :D

    Don't kill them , they clean the brown algae and they keep clean the tank in general
