    hey just got to my tank now and found this critter floating in the water. the white thing sticking out works like a tongue. pics are not very good quality and this one is very small so it made hard to get a good one out. it looks like a mussel of some sort. not 100% sure though.

    this one is a bit better as it is now on the substrate and not moving around to much

    Looks like bi-valves.

    They can walk around. Need a bigger hole to fit in.
