Lazy Snail

Here is what i am pretty sure is a Margarita Snail, and for the past three days he has been on the back of this Red tip hermit. Dunno what he is doing, but i hope he is getting enough food. Maybe the hermit moves to fast and he is dizzy, or afraid to step off the ride.


Here he is outlined in pink, help you see what I am talking about.

I think it looks more like a nerite.

Margaritas typically don't do that great in warmer water tanks like many of us have. Well, on the bright side, the hermit probably has a clean algae free shell
