I have discovered that I have baby snails in two of my tanks, and the weird part is they are NOT Mystery snails, or MTS (Malayasian Trumpet) with I have purchased. They look like they might be ramshorn snails but no way to know till they get bigger.
I do not want them so, my question is should I let them grow big enough to sell or just feed them (after squishing) to my bottom feeders?

They could be just regular old pond snails that came in on a plant. Get some Assassin snails and they will eat the snails in your tank and get every last one (squishing only gets rid of the ones you see, and you will have more).

You can then easily sell the assasin snails.

But I would have to remove my MTS and Mystery snails before introducing the assasin snails, right?

Yes you would as they would be eaten by the assasin snails. Put your MTS and Mystery into your 1 gallon :)
