    They look like parasitic pyramidellid snails to me.

    So, predator,

    but it could be both... baby, predator snails... Sounds kinda like a horor movie title.

    Check any clams in the tank ASAP!

    I agree with both Tom and Binford. Looks like a predator and the leopard should go after them.
