Can anyone ID this?



I removed this from the glass inside my tank this morning. I've seen them a couple times and just cleaned them because I thought it was just normal debris. I was looking at my sword plant this morning and realized that it was moving like a snail. I removed one from the glass. It looks green inside with a clear mucus like substance, but it has a thin shell.
