probably not im sry :( but i think its dead because all of the fry are picking at it and it doesnt move that much.

I'd guess that it was a pond snail that came in off your plat a long time ago, I think I've had several generations of them. If its shell is see through, it's most likely dead.

well it was moving with its shell that was clear.i put it in a breeders net with guppy fry and they were picking at it and i cant find it now so i guess they ate it! its alright cause i dont want it to get over populated with snails.i took out the only live plant so this shouldnt happen again.

In my tank, I only have about sdeven small pond snails at a time because there's not enough food on the bottom for there to be a population explosion. As long as you don't overfeed, they're fine and they clean your glass.
