Got a Black Devil Snail sold as Rabbit Snail?

derpychicken

So I saw that petco was selling rabbit snails and decided to get some, and its been a week now. The snail hasnt moved in 3 days and just sits in one spot, sometimes peeking out, but I have noticed that it seems to have a shell much smoother than a rabbit snail, and searches seemed to lead me to a black devil snail. I'll get pictures later as im currently busy, but i have noticed the sort of notch like structure at the base of the shell, and how the shell is almost perfectly smooth. Im afraid that my tank conditions arent suited to it, do any of you have some tips?

Looks like they should be able to survive in most tanks. Assuming you have a freshwater tank, shouldn't breed, looks like they are like nerites that way.

I kind of want one or 2 now though!

Yeah, he looks nothing like that. Might really be a black devil snail
Here is a picture of him, hope some of you more experienced people with inverts can tell if this is just an odd rabbit snail or a whole different species :p

Actually, I only got this one big guy lol. The other three were small, conical snails that looked more like a compressed trumpet snail, and I think these guys are actually juvenile rabbit snails. Unfortunately they've disappeared into the rock formation I use to hide shrimp, but I'll try to get a pic if I can.
I am a bit worried, though, the snail hasn't moved at all in a few days now, but ill still see its antennae poking out from time to time.

You may be correct in the devil snail identification. My snail is more active when the tank lights go out. Maybe check on him at night or when the lights go out to see if he is more active. It looks like a cool snail.
