I can't remember the name of them. They are a harmless snail. I hadn't seen them in a long time then I started seeing them all over. They are fast movers. Kinda cool to watch. Take em out if you don't like it.

Stomatellas are great, I don't think there are even any rumors of them doing harm, uncontroversially a good hitch hiker.

If they reproduce in your tank they can fill the role of other small snails. They won't mow down hair algae and such like turbos, but they will eat at filamentous algae on the glass like nerites and other small snails do.
