Assume we had a few hitchhikers in hornwort we got from a LFS. I don't have any experience with snails but googling led me to believe they are ramshorn snails? They have been stuck together for 2 days now and there is a weird transparent sack on a piece of hornwort I "planted". I think I might leave it all alone and just see what happens. Are they plant eaters? Seems to me they go after algae, excess food and waste so more is better? Thanks for reading, can't wait to here from you!

Yes, ramshorn are common hitchhikers, they breed as much as they can given the food at hand but they don't damage healthy plants so overall they are good for the aquarium.
