snail identification help

I need help identifying this snail. It is a good algae eater and stays in the LR. Most importantly, where can I go to order more?
Thanks for the help.

I have all the answers. It is the questions that don't match.

Hard to tell from the picture. Does you camera have a macro mode so that you can take extreme close ups in focus?

Anyway, just guessing from the outline of the snail, I would say either a limpet variety or Stomatella Varia. I would say the latter if the snail moves extremely quickly when you try to grab it. Stomatella Varia move extremely fast for a snail. They can almost run...

I'd go with Stomatella.
