I saw something new and weird in my tank last night and would like an ID please!!! I don't know how I've never seen this guy before. It has the body of a slug, about an inch long, 1/4 inch wide. But it has like a half shell over the top part of it's body. It has two antenna and a sucker mouth. Now if I remember my biology right, it can't be a slug if it has a shell right? So it has to be a snail of some kind? Any ideas? When I tried to snap it's picture, it was blending in with the LR so I couldn't get it visible. Thanks for any insight!

It is probably a stomatella, they are beneficial. This is one I smapped in my tank.

Thanks Sirreal. I did a web search for stomatella and found more pics and that is definitly what it is. I tried finding it myself before posting here and had absolutly no luck and you knew just based off my lame description, you guys are awesome.
