I just found this TINY (1/8”) snail on the glass in my 60g tank. As far as I can see, it’s the only one. I was hoping someone here can help me figure out what type of snail it is and if it’s good or bad. For some context, my tank is 3 weeks old, and I only have a few zoas, GSP, Xenia, and CUC consisting of (2x emerald crabs, 2x peppermint shrimps, 2x fighting conchs, 3x nassarius snails, and 5-10 each of blue legged hermit crabs, astrea/turbo/trochus snails.

Got a more close up pic? Can't really tell but if its on glass, chances are its a film algae grazer so should be OK.
It's so tiny that it's hard to get the camera to focus. I am going to try to see if I can get a better picture with my DSLR camera later.

He disappears now for days at a time and then shows up again. I haven’t seen it go near my corals only rocks and glass.
They're great film algae eaters and will lay their eggs underneath pumps or overhangs. Mine deposit their eggs on the glass, pumps, return nozzles, etc. They are awesome little guys! Most commonly referred as nano conchs or strombus grazers.
