    Help Identifying a Snail??

    I recently purchased some live rock (last week), I didn't notice this little guy, until the other day. He seems to be wondering around and today, I thought I noticed some antennas so I assume it's a snail. Does anyone know for sure and if it's okay to have?

    Thank you. Anything I should be cautious about?

    Depends which kind it is. You would have to figure out which kind it is. If it is a keyhole limpet (pretty large) they are reported to eat some coral. If it's a different kind that just grazes algae then it's fine. I have tons of some very small ones in my tank that I have had forever that are about 1/4 " in size that are reef safe but you have to identify which variety you have. See what is habits are for eating.
