Does anyone know what snail this is? I'm almost certain he didnt come on a plant.

There are lots of different ramshorn species. Either yours is a baby of one of the large species, or it's one of the tiny ones. I have the tiny ones as pest snails in both my tanks.

Should I keep him? I can't see any others in the tank. I've also just noticed another one, I'll send a picture too.

I agree, the first one looks like a ramshorn snail and this last pictures you posted looks like a bladder snail to me.

I would concur with ramshorn...I've got a lot of them that came over on plants and I didn't see them until they got that size. The one that has survived my assassin snail gauntlet is HUGE
