It looks like it could be scutariella, are they waving about if you look really close in a gross way?

I treated mine successfully with Fluke Solve, you can buy it online easily, and treated along what the packet said, 2 treatments 2 weeks apart to get the newly hatched ones too. It never came back. I've used this same medication in tanks with shrimps and fish with no problems whatsoever, it can apparently kill snails (my various common "pest" snails including MTS and ramshorns were all fine tho).
