    If it looks like a slug with a nasty pinky fingernail as a shell, the it is a stomatella snail. They are good algae eaters and breed well. They tend to hide while lights are on in my tanks.

    Stomatellas will breed rapidly to match food supply and you will get cool colour variations too...I love them but so do my fish....

    If you have a lot of film algae you will eventually, they will mostly stay on the rocks by day but will move onto the glass if there is algae there when just the blues/moonlights are on. But if you have any potential snail eaters in the tank they will become snacks since they don't have much shell to protect them.
