The little snail is so tiny I'm afraid of injuring it trying to mess with its shell. I did pinch the plastic bag while it was in it to tear off whatever that furry black stuff is.

I've looked up a few types of snails online and I havent found what kind it is yet. It seems happy, and seems to be growing.

I havent gotten the chance to take a good picture of it yet.

I appreciate ALL the advice. Even the not so good stuff (that way I know what not to do)
I would have prolly made some grave mistakes had you not brought the salt thing up.

I've began feeding IT lettuce and broccoli.

I'm still pretty clueless though.

That looks like a pond snail. I wouldn't be surprised if you end up finding more of them soon.

If it is a pond snail, i would not put it in your tank! Unless of course you want a snail infestation. lol

LIke others have said, no salt, they won't eat fish poop and you don't need the flakes to spoil ... if they fall the snail will find them. Egg shells in the filter will also add calcium to the water.
