    Abalone

    Any of you find these in your tank? I found one last night on my glass.

    You sure it wasn't a stomatella?
    Last time I checked my watch this was America!

    Asked someone a lot more knowledgable than me and they said it is an abalone snail. Stomatella looks pretty similar, though... Hmmm...

    Abalone have a very iridescent shell with holes to let water in and out on it, very distinctive. I bet it is a stomatella.

    It's telling me I can't post the pic because I've exceeded my limit? I text it to bush. He voted abalone.

    It's still a baby at the moment as far as I can tell. It's very spiky, too.

    Once it starts getting some color to it other than being off white I will post a better one. I saw it again last night on the front glass again in the same spot. It seems to like to eat the algae on the glass near the toadstool.
