Help me ID this Snail Plz =) Picture included
I think this snail came into my tank along with some Java Moss
i got from my LFS. When i first noticed him he was no bigger than maybe a 1/4 inch or less ( 1 centimeter or less)
At that time he was sneaking around in the moss.
Now he is an inch and a half long, (4 cetimeters) and only comes out at night. I almost thought he got eaten for a while but then started to noticed trails along the back of the tank eaten out of the algea.
When i turned on the lights this morning i caught him on the back wall cruising around. He has little anteanas but you cant see them in the picture. I think he is a malaysian trumpet snail from what i could find. Can any one tell me for sure? I need to know if he is dangerous or not, i read trumpet snails can be good because they stir the substrate. As far as i can tell he is the only snail in the tank.
Thanks for your help.
