Is this a nerite?

So I went to the store today and I got 3 nerites and one mystery snail.  I put them in my tank and was making sure they were all right side up when I noticed a bug on the glass.  But no, it was a baby snail!  I am guessing he came along with the other snails since I have never seen anything like him in my tank before and I noticed him just after I added the new snails.  Also I know that nerite eggs are not supposed to hatch in freshwater and all I have for snail so far is nerites, so I am pretty sure he is brand new.  Is this baby a nerite?  Mystery snail?  Pest snail....or is it too soon to tell?

 

New snails that I bought:

No, it's just a pond snail (I think they're actually called bladder snail, I'm not 100% on the name), they usually come in on plants :)

Yes. Right away. They're horrible to get rid of once they start laying eggs.

Ok, thanks.  He is in a tupperware and I will get rid of him and any more if I see them :)
