well basically same shell spiraling as the malaysian trumpet, that typical long spiral shape, just light colored and very small. range in size from 2mm to 4mm. these hide all day long beneath the soil, once the lights are out they emerge. i know now that they are harmless to the fish but still wanna get rid of these stowaways since there are so many of them. eventually they start eating my limited plant supply.
went looking for the elusive assassin snail today but couldnt find it, up to my loaches now i guess
