I'd guess either some form of conch of Nassarius. The only reason I think it might be some sort of conch is that the shell seems very rounded towards the back, with light colored banding such as the fighting conch generally has.

also the third pic shows a distinct tube that would imply it is a burrower.

Looks like a stomatella to me.

No it doesn't lol,

I took out a piece of rock to break off some xenia and had like 4 of these guys come off the rock. I have a conch in the tank as well. Def not a stomatella. Thanks though.

Edit: Jeremy or Jenn you guys have a guess?
