I think you need a better pic. It might be a nassarius snail though.

I agree on both counts pic is difficult to see it and it could well be a nassarius snail. The other thing that is similar in appearance to the shell I can see in the pic is something I have had in my tank munching on my zoas, heliacus snail. google it and you will see a better pic. if it is you can identify it quite easily by the cone shaped door / cover on its head. Get it out asap if you think it is one, they are destructive little guys!

it's not a nassarius snail. it looks like a bumble bee snail to me. the yellow coloration on the shells could be environmental. this guy may have come in on your rock , where as the others were purchased, and were collected from a different area. bumble bee snails are carnivores btw.
