Give it a few weeks, if it's still around you may be able to tell what it is.

Doesn't have a shell? The pic isn't very good so it's hard to tell.

Could be:
Stomatella - will have a tiny flatish shell that looks like a finger nail.

Collinista - round shell like a turbo that is white and brown pattern

Dibs turbo - same round shell but the shell is mixed with colors of green, blue, sometimes pink.

All are good algae eaters and not a problem in the system. Congrats!

Get a better pic if you can't ID it from here. :)
