    I agree, it sounds like a stomatella snail.

    Yep...thats him...must have hitchhiked his way into tank, I havent added anything in months so he has been doing a great job of hiding. Funny cause he is right out in the open and is moving alot. I did rearrange my rocks last water change, maybe that flushed him out...funny thing about this hobby, you get pets you don't know you have...thanks for the help...
