looks like a ramshorn snail to me, thye are mostly and commonly just brown, but breeders have vred them to have that leopard pattern and various colors like blue and pink, it should be fine eating left over fish food, but if you are worrying about it toss in an algae wafer or a few extra flakes for the little one.
