Yours looks like it might be a Tiger Cowry, and from what I can find they're reef safe with caution. It might eat soft corals, leathers, sponges, anemones, and starfish and once it gets big enough it might move and/or damage corals because of it's size.

Juveniles eat algae/detrius and adults are more carnivorous, atleast according to that page I linked. Live Aquaria has similar info.
