Well, the adult MT snail as about 3/4" long, with a very
slender shell that looks like a corkscrew or something. the
colour is brown, with nice patches on it. The shell has a
lid. The snail is interesting, because it's dark in colour
unlike many other snails. Its mouth is very long.

The snails don't destroy any plants, and they don't really
move the substrate, so I don't think there would be any
problems. They don't need a deep substrate.
