Margarita snail lived thru tank cycle!

Wow. My ammonia in my 40g went thru the roof. Started cycling with shrimp, then added 40 lbs of rock with plenty of die-off.

Best I think happened was as follows:the ammonia went down, maybe from .7 or so, I borrowed a powerhead for the tank from my main. OK, so a week later the ammonia zeroed. Nitrites way up. 5 days later, ammonia and nitrites both a zero. So I take the power head and move it aroud the tank to get soem gunk off the rocks. I look dwon and see this margarita snail.

Maybe it was in the powerhead all along.

Anyway, that whole thing just kinda amazed me.

I'd guess it was in the live rock. Must be a small one?
