    Need urgent ID !!!

    Last night, long after lights went off, I turned on my desk lamp and I saw something wierd/new in my tank.
    It was something sticking out the rock (originaly base rock) all the way to the sang, digonaly in a straight line.
    he color was tanish and it didn't first.
    I brought the light closer and it shrunk in the rock (it didn't seam it pulled itself in the rock, but shrunk).
    It stayed on the hole in the rock. It didn't move.
    I couldn't take a picture of it.
    Before it shrunk, it was arround 2" long and almost 1/4" thick and round. (loked almost like strawberry conch's neck in color and shape, but thicker)
    This morning it was gone.
    By the way...the tip that was in the sand, it was at the spot it threw in a piece of frozen uncooked shrimp earlier in the evening.
    What could it be???
    Is it good or bad???
    Somebody have a picture or a link???

    They're good. They're part of the clean up crew.
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
