    Default Need help with ID. Maybe baby snails?

    I have noticed these slug like things on the glass in my aquarium. There are about 20 in ranging sizes from 1/8 in to maybe a 1/2 they are oval and kind of a domed top. The largest one has pushed his shell up off of the slug part. Before It was attached now looks more like foot and shell. Sorry about the technical jargon!! I assume they are snails. Any feedback would be appreciated.

    Stomatella? They kind of look like a slug wearing a shell that is WAY too small for them...

    They are a harmless part of your clean up crew. I can't think of the name of my head (it's right on the tip of my toung) but I have about 50 or so and they are fine.
    Does water always taste like salt and poo????

    No it sounds like a type of Stomatella.
