Turbo Snail?

I got conflicting stories on this snail. It's a big one about 2.5 inches across. Thanks

In my experience I had them die in my tank. I guess mine didn't have enough algae to eat. Now that I look back though they did eat a lot of algae. I had a 20 so they didn't have enough food so I recommend a large system for them to eat algae. Also I heard people say they collapse rocks because of their large size

I have a 150 and I don't clean my back glass. Plenty of algae build up. I've never seen a turbo with coloring like this one

I haven't seen a turbo snail that looked like that either. Can you take another pic of the top of the shell?

If that isn't him, I'd be more inclined to believe he is one of the tapestry nerite snails.

It may be the zebra turbo. It's a big one

Guess I ignored the size. I think I listed the id, hopefully.
