Grey and White Snail/Slug

anyone recognize this critter? I've only recently seen him scurrying along my LR munching on algae. For a snail, he can move pretty quick! He has a rather long foot which looks almost more like mucus than a snails foot. Any into would be appreciated! He's about 3/8-1/2" long.

My first guess would be a cap snail (Stomatella), but I've never seen on that looked quite that color.
