I have the same things crawing around in my overflow. The only snails I have in my system are turbos, so I am guessing what I have are baby turbos. Unless something else came in on the LR.

Quote from Dr. Ron Shimek:

"These are grazers and are actually a trochid, with a very flat shell. Good grazers, and they often reproduce well in a tank without hermit crabs."
Good. 8)
