Question What the heck is this?!

I... just randomly found this guy crawling on the side of an extra tank I had lying around. I was using it to raise some brine shrimp. I had just put in some food for them in there, stirred the water up a bit... and then I thought I saw this weird, curled-up worm on the side.

Turns out, he's not a worm. He's a snail. With an invisible shell?
What is he? And I assume he came from the plants I had in there a while ago, but could he also have come with the brine shrimp eggs I got?

Well, I figured he was a snail. I've just never seen one like this one before.

If I can find him again... I think he's hiding in the rocks. He's so small. D:
I'll probably move him to my Gourami's tank.... More for him to eat there.

Well just make sure the Gouramis do not eat him first!

Shoot... forgot about him eating small creatures. *remembers her two tadpoles and glofish*
I do have snails in my tank, though... Hard to find, but it doesn't look like he bothers them. Then again... I dunno. |D Maybe I'll just move him to my turtle Samm's aquarium....
