Yep that's your garden variety pond snail. I had a few hitchhike in with some plants and a year later you only see 3 to 4 adults moving about at any given time. I guess I feed sparingly enough.

Thanks! Taking out so many floaters and plant cover meant more light so the algae tried to come back. I lowered the PAR so the algae won't take hold.
