    cant remember the name...think it starts with a C, its a type of snail, just has a flat shell...good for your tank so dont stress, I have loads of them too...only come out at night.

    There is another thread on them somewhere on here if you look.

    Not really too concerned as its in my sump and i never put in in. there is lotsa new life in my sump sponges, some sorta ployps and now that thing. Its a great idea to get LR from different guys.

    There's 3 things in the first pic, the big snail, a starfish right next to it and then another baby snail of the same type a little bit further to the right, nice and full of life.:)
