is this a plain ole nassarius snail or a bad whelk? I have some nassarius snails(large and small) like this but I have not seen them in a while and they didnt look like this when I put them in (they were all grey). I found this in my zoo's and I have been having zoo problems ( lost 2 frags ) so I'm searching for reasons.

well after reading the article i posted a second time, the only real way to tell is to catch it or get a close enough look and see if it has the "tail shell" that allows it to seal itself up.

I wouldnt go by just coloration alone.

from what I read the snout is also a tell tale part in the fact that the welk has the specific pattern on it where as the nas snail dosn't
