    I'm not really sure but looks a bit like a triton.
    Definitely not the sundial snail that is known to eat zoas.

    Looks more like one of the smaller Thais species, but hard to tell with the pic.

    Doesn't look like nassarius snail, but if I was you, I'd remove that just to be on the safe side.
    Snails and zoas don't go together :whistling:
