It's a fast bugger despite it's small ~ 3 mm size. Stomatella snail?

Yup, very, very good snail. I have one that is about an inch long. Keeps the rocks polished clean and free of algae. Had a bunch of small ones a couple months ago, but don't see them now. Hope some predator didn't get a taste for them...

Thanks. Wasn't 100% sure as I've never seen before. I'll take the little guy out of purgatory and throw it back in! :)
