Very small snails

I received three horned nerite (clithon donovani) snails in good condition. There were different sizes. The biggest was about the size of a pea and then one somewhat smaller and then another smaller than that. I am new to snails in the aquarium and had no idea they would be so small. The pictures don't show the size on the website. The big one I could see the horns and a little bit on the medium size. They've been in my 55 gallon tank now for several weeks and only occasionally do I see the big one on the glass wall, and one time the medium one as well, and the smallest I can't find. They are about the size of the gravel in my tank. So I think they are an interesting looking variety with the horns, but if they're not on the glass wall I can't find them. The website should be more clear as to their size.
