Snail id

Found this very tiny snail. Iíve not added any new plants for month and both got a vinegar bath prior to being introduced. Inhabitants are 3 neo shrimp and a nerite snail. The snail is so small I almost didnít see it. I removed it just in case. Do I need to look out for more?

TIA

Hi and welcome to the forum

It could be a juvenile Malaysian trumpet/ livebearer snail, which are awful things to get rid of. Or another snail that is similar but much easier to control.

I would remove it and monitor for anymore that appear.

Thanks for the response. I guess I’ll blanch some zucchini and see if I can find any more. I saw one but it fell into the Java moss.
