    I have a question about pest snails, so everyone knows about the dark round snails, has anyone ever experienced small pest snails with pointy coin like shells? I can post pics if it's something crazy or unheard of.

    Malaysian trumpet snails and some pond snails have pointy shells.

    I only ever had the pond snails from plants, also have had apple and mystery snails in the tank but they died off. Then I got a lone assassin snail, he is still milling about, I've never seen him do his job. I also read they Breen in salt water, which rules that out if it's correct.

    Ok, your correct I think, they look similar to the trumpet snails, but behave exactly like them. Thank you for the insight.

    Those look like malaysians to me. Annoying little things.
