strange looking snail id #1
hi all I’ve found a strange looking snail like creature in my tank it has a small shell looks like a helmet, it has more flesh than shell and long antennas coming out. when I prodded it almost ran the speed of it was incredible it was kind of leaping across the rock. I cant get a photo as my cams bust
any ideas?
