That sounds like Malaysian trumpet snails, they are livebearing snails and breed like the blazes if you overfeed your tank

Tough as nails....can be difficult to get rid of. I don't mind them, they let me know when I am feeding to much, they also are a good indicator of water quality, if they all head to the top then ya know ya need to test ya water

I wouldn't use copper or salt in a bristlenose tank :nono:

These guys are super hard to get rid of, usually the best you can do is control their numbers. Cuckoo catfish and clown loaches are good at sucking the little wretches out of their shells and leaving behind a pile of empty shells.

Cheers, Doug

They look kinda cool from google images, are they worth getting some as a clean up crew???

No. No it's not. They multiply to stupid levels, before you know it they're in your filters, substrate, plants...Everywhere.
