Pics of my hitchhiker snail!
 
Sorry they're not more clear, but at least you can see his shape. He was on the moss ball this morning when I turned the light on. No clue where he is now.

Yay! That's what I was hoping for! The other hitchhiker is a ramshorn. Not sure I'm so thrilled about him.

I'm not so sure, looks more like a pond snail to me, cause of the stubbyness of the point. Plus, MTS aren't as often hitchhikers cause they spend more time on the substrate than in plants. Either aren't particularly bad though - neither are ramshorns!
