    Default Sundail??? Or colonista??? Possible other???

    I am afraid this is a sundail snail....having a hard time telling for absolute certain. This snail came from a tank with lotts of polyps, and no sighn of polyp loss, and all are growing very well. This tank also has a very long term established colonista population over 3 years old.

    The more I look at this snail, the more sirens go off- and say sundail though!!!

    Help?

    Are these things big enough where you can see them and grab them out? How big is the one you found Chris?
