Does anyone have any idea what kind of snail this is? It came to me as a hitchhiker with a coral about 6 months back. It's nearly doubled in size since I first saw it. It's about 1/2 an inch now. The entire snail is very dark, body and shell. The bottom of it's foot is white however. It appears to just graze off the live rock like all my other snails although it never touches the tank glass at all. It's very elusive as it's EXTREMELY nocturnal. It really only comes out during the night hours and if I so much as turn a light on in the room it will quickly retreat into a hole in the live rock. I grabbed it for a bit this evening just to snap a picture of it. Does anyone know what kind it is? Thanks!

Looks like a Nerite

Mine come out in shifts (day & night); clean everywhere, including glass and each other!
