well you got it, they are apple snails. Probably Pomacea bridgesii but a lot of times they are a mix of the species, and never identified, just sold as mystery snails.
In any case, care requirements for them all are the same

Heres a short article on their care

The way to tell the different species of apples apart is by the shell shape. Other than that I cant help too much.

Applesnail.net is a good bet though
