What kind of snails are these?

Are these Malaysian Trumpet Snails?

The picture doesn't show it, but they have a coloring of yellow and black, and looks similar to an Assassin Snail that I put in the tank to help with this.

Malaysian trumpet snails. Generally, too hard for a puffer's teeth.

They are actually excellent for detritus cleaning & aerating the substrate, for non-puffer tanks. Loaches love them!
