Hello! I'm just wondering if anyone has had these snails in their tank before and knows what they are. We have about 7 in our 10 gallon tank that we've had for a year. They always come out at dusk and nighttime. They've always been in our tank and they haven't seemed to cause any issues. My mom and I love them. The picture of the large clump of them has only happened once. I have no idea what they were eating but it must have been tasty!

Marginella snails? There's a picture in the link below that looks VERY similar to what you have.

Yeah, that's exactly them. Thanks for the link!! Do you think I should be concerned though? They've never shown any problems that I have noticed.

Personally, I wouldn't lose much sleep over them.

If you think you have too many of them, you can use a piece of shrimp to bait them onto a small section of netting or something flat, and just remove a bunch of them.
