Hi,

I have a 50 gallon planted tank and have spotted a few of these unintentional guests lately. Does anyone know what kind they are? Should I be plucking them out or leaving them in peace? So far they don't seem to be doing much damage, but I don't want to take any chances...

Hi there, it looks like a trumpet snail. Google and see what you think. Also check out assassin snail. Both have their perks and their drawbacks.

Hmmm... Well they are shaped like assassin snails, but no stripes. I have a few trumpet snails in there on purposes, but they're longer and thinner, with really detailed markings (almost like some marine shells) the one in my hand is one of those trumpet snails. Are there different kinds of trumpet snails?
