Ok, looks as if a Pond/Bladder snail snuck in with my Pictus. As far as I can tell though, it was the only one that came and I just caught it HOPEFULLY before it wreaked any havoc. I've heard that it's a very prolific snail and will plague my tank in no time. Should I flush it?

if you want to keep it you can put it in some water for awhile and see if it has babies if not then you can keep it if you want otherwise just crush it with your shoe and throw it away

I'd just smash it against the glass and your fish will get a special treat! I know this sounds morbid, but if you wait to see if it has babies, you will run into a problem. It may lay eggs where you don't see them.
