Sorry for the picture, it's off my cell phone and the snail is the size of a grain of rice maybe smaller. 15 + have appeared in my tank in last month or two. Thanks in advance!

I replied to you FB thread while on my phone. Now that I'm on the computer with a bigger monitor, I'm quite sure it's an assassin.  How hard is the shell?  If it's quite hard, that'll be the tell I'm looking for.

Nice thanks j vision! This is still very weird. I'm 99% sure they must be assassin's.  the only this that had me wondering is reading about assassin's and how they usually lay very few eggs and some how I have close to 30 of these little guys all around the same size. Again I haven't had any snails In this tank for a year and a half at least the next all of a sudden I start to see these tiny almost air bubbles looking things. 

Not a bad thing as I have other tanks over run with Ramsey horn.

I was just looking for some info on what I believe to be the same type of snail, my question is; has anyone had snails like these spontaneously appear in a tank? I haven't added any fish in 3 months, plants in over a year and no new decorations either. 

I have 2 tanks sharing a sump and the snails, about 100 or more 1-2.5mm just appeared in only one of the tanks.  I watch my tanks closely and today is the first time I have seen them.  

Sorry my pics are worse
