Please ID (snail?)

Hi everyone! Long time reader, first time poster. Can anyone ID this critter. Showed up in my seahorse tank and just want to make sure he's ok in there.

I should've got a shot from the other side but I was heading out and just grabbed this quick one.

It's probably a Money Cowry, but it is 100,000 times as hard to identify snails from the bottom of the foot, and is often impossible. The only reason I think it may be a Money Cowry is the hint of black on white markings that I THINK I can see on the edge of the mantle. I normally wouldn't even bother to guess at an ID from the bottom of the foot, and it certainly could be something else.
