UI (Unidentified Invert)

I need help with an Unidentified Invert that suddenly showed up in my QT tank. It is very small, maybe the size of a pea, an pretty interesting looking. The attached picture doesn't do it justice.

It looks like it's a snail but, what species, I don't know. Anyone have any ideas?

Harmless collonista snail.

I did some searching and you're right, it is a collonista snail. Thanks for the ID! I'm glad it was a beneficial hitchhiker.

You probably have a lot more. They're nocturnal so check your tank at night. They reproduce well in our tanks.
