The pad under his shell is the operculum, a bony structure that snails use to close themselves in their shells. It's basically a snail's front door. They shut it when they feel threatened.

I really hope that tank is at least ten gallons... A betta, mystery snail, and ADF are no good for anything smaller. Please, read the link in my signature, it will tell you everything that you need to know about ADF care, and ask me if you have any other questions.

Australia has really strict quarantine regulations - new species aren't allowed in in case people release them and they overpopulate the wild or threaten native species. Hamsters are illegal too, for the same reasons. :(

Is it true that ADFs are social and should be kept in pairs/groups? Or is that urban myth?

Awe I'm sorry to hear that
I've heard they like to be in pairs but can be alone

To the OP, you never answered my question...

To bombalurina, adfs can be kept in as many or ad few as you like. Much like some schooling fish, they are simply more bold in numbers. But that also depends on the individual. I have kept single frogs that tended to be bolder alone and hide when in groups.
