No need to worry, probably a Pond Snail. You need to act fast and remove it. When you see one, there are likely others.

I was so hoping it was not. I love my mystery snails and like my nerites, but I do not want pond snails.

Very good chance it will be a snack. You can always squish and feed it to them (depends on how you feel about doing it).

From the side it indeed looks like a pond snail. Cut back on feeding and/or so much at one time. If you divide the one day of food for 2 or 3 feedings for a day, it helps the fish eat "all" of the food and hunt for more from the plants and substrate, instead of letting it just sit on the floor.

I got it out and was waiting on confirmation of my worst fears. Is crushing it the most humane way to go?

That last one looks like MTS.

As for crushing, I look at it this way, at least it is a meal for fish than trash. Ecologically speaking it is furthering the life cycle. I feel like it is the best use.

Personally I like pond snails. They do not seem to over breed here, a bit lower pH maybe than their preferred and they do an elegant job of cleaning. They are pretty also. If I have many I will grab a bunch and they get to go into the Clown Loach tank to feed them a treat.

Otherwise if one gets in the middle of a pwc or removal for Duckweed let's say, if there is just one it is usually thrown back if it is a giant or squished if it is small and feed the Endler mommas.

The first pic (pond snail whatever they are) I got some with the plants I ordered too. I noticed I was getting more little by little. I don't mind them but when I start seeing more, they gotta go. I got a bunch out of my tank today. I put a slice of cucumber on top of my water sprite (floating plant) and got a few that way by leaving it there over night or two. That works pretty good. But still have more to hunt down. Getting them as I see them now. Ugh! Kind of a pain.
