    I found that all snails are Turbo's. Well at least to the LFS guys. Mostly they do not even have a clue what it is.
    Anyway I found this sea shell ID site.
    Sea Shells
    The page I got the ID for my snails.
    Shell Catalogue - Family BABYLONIIDAE
    Only problem is that you must know the scientific name. But at least if you can not find your shell, you were given the wrong name and whatever the LFS tried to sell to you is something else.

    And I did not know that there are so many species out there.
