    it is one of the turbo snail. Is it local or bought from a LFS? That would help in the ID

    Do you know from where in the world the shipment came?

    Would help if you want the right scientific name.

    Anyway, it is a vegetarian snail and should be OK in your tank. Only issue could be if it drops off a rock and he cannot help himself up. In the sea he would just wait for the next big wave but that we do not have in our tanks. So just help him up if that happens.

    Cool thanks for all the info. I think the shipment came from Mozambique if I remember correctly.

    Mozambique doesn't export, so that's unlikely. ;)
