    Snail I'd please

    Have this snail don't know we're it came from.it has been growing fast. all it wants to do is attach it self to the shell of one of my astrea snails. Which results in the astrea snail upside down in the sand do to the extra weight. I've pulled them apart and put the mystery snail away from the others it always finds its way back to one of the astrea snails and latches on. Seems like odd behavior doesn't seem to try to eat them just latches on and goes for a ride

    Anyone know what it is and if its one i should get rid ofAttachment 2221

    Looks like a type of cerith snail. Crabs love to use their shells too.

    My florida ceriths look similar, never had one hitchhike on my astreas though, however I often see my dwarf ceriths eating algea off my astreas
