    I tend to be biased towards snails I don't know, but decided to only move this one to a container in my nano.

    It is about 5mm, brightly stripy colours.

    What is it?

    Do I keep it or take it out?

    I don't see anything, are you talking about that black blotch inside the rock?
    If it's in a container then can't you get a better pic of it?

    It is right in the middle of the pick, on the horizontal ledge.

    Will try to take a better pick in the container.

    oooooooooh there - the pointy cone shaped thing :D

    Took me like 5 mins to see it. Best to put it in a container and snap a pic.

    It is so small I can not get my camera to focus on it.

    Will put my zoom/macro on and see if I can get a better one.

    It has escaped, but are cleaning the glass, good sign :blush:

    PS, the crab is my Pom Pom.

    sharp pointy, to be a good guy it could be a Cerithiidae snail, but then it would be on the substrate.

    Other than that, a better picture would help a lot.
