Nerite Snail Shell Issue?

Now this might just be me being paranoid, but is there supposed to be a white triangle at the base of a zebra nerite shell as in pic below? He seems to be in good shape otherwise, but today he climbed above the waterline for a bit and is now just hanging below it. My water parameters are amo 0, nit 0, nitrates 30 , Ph 8 (7 with CO2 injection, 8 hrs), dkh 3.

I don't have too much algae but I thought he'd just been doing a good job of cleaning it up.

I just checked my nerites, and they have it too I wouldn't worry.

Thanks Dakotaz. This guy is pretty young and growing. Are your guys full grown? I'll watch and see how it changes with time.
