So I found a snail...

Just found a snail! It's TINY and the exact same color as my driftwood so Im not surprised I havent noticed it before. Not sure what type it is... Any ideas? Should I be freaked out?



It must have came with a plant :/ (last plant I put in was an anubias about a month ago?) I dont mind a few but I dont want to wake up to seeing hundreds of these crawling up the glass

It looks like a pond snail...

Greater good might mean the difference between a hundred snails and just the one D: Trust me.. Consider putting it in a small vase along with any others you find?
I did that and kept my nerite and other pond snails in there, they kept the algae down because it was a plant grow tank :D

Yep, some snails will multiply on their own, even without company.
