    First one looks like a nudi and second like a whelk. Both bad. I would flush the nudi and sump the whelk.

    Second, I doubt if it is a whelk. Did you find it on something local, or do you suspect it came in with import shipment?

    I would sump it, until later.

    The first one is a stomatella snail, they good to have.
    The second one is not good, I found some on my zoas that have died back, and so have few other guys.

    Sorry. Was on my phone. Did not see the shell. :) Still pretty sure second one is a whelk though. I got them from shop bought LS and on locally collected before.
