What is one of the colors on a clownfish? (hint there is a clownfish on the CR logo in the top left corner of the page.)

Can anyone ID this snail for me?

    Been seeing these tiny guys around the rockwork at nights lately, just turned on the lights to get a 'semi-decent' shot of one. They are tiny tiny! Maybe 2-3 mm. Anyone know what type of snails these are?

    I think they're a type of stomatella (spelling?), but could be wrong. Either way they are a beneficial snail.

    If its not the stomatella, as Tom says-

    It looks like it could also be a Collonista snail.
