    Hi guys

    This morning I saw a small 1mm snail on my glass, it's still white and look like a cone shape, Don't know if he is cleaning the glass or just waiting for something.

    With all the threads I've been reading about problems with snails I don't know if I should kill it or leave it.

    Sorry camera doesn't want to take a pic it's to small.
    What should I do?

    Hey xtreme

    Did the snail look anything like this?

    If so you could have Pyramid snails (Pyramidellidae) these are paracitic snails that are known to prey on clams and other snails.
