There's a snail in my tank!!!!!! :D
 
Hey guys! Was just looking at my tank (as you do) and saw something in the corner of my eye on a leaf. I looked at this little thing smaller than my little fingers nail and discovered its a snail! It must have come in on a plant and I've not noticed it for the whole week my new tank setup has been running! Anyways, I was wondering if you could help identify it? No picture as its so small you wouldn't be able to make anything out. The best I can describe is that it has a see through shell with a black spot in the centre and a black stripe at the front . It's body is a pale yellow and it's smaller than my little fingers nail. And way smaller than a penny/cent.

Probably one of the small common snails. When very young they have little if any colour. If you do a Google search of "Aquarium snails" you'll find a lot of photos to compare.
