    Please Id this

    This came attacted to the new Blastamosa frag I have added in my tank. The "thing" is in a white calcium tube about 3-5 mil in diameter. It uses cob webs to feed. They look just like spider cob webs, when it feeds it pulls the webs into its mouth and anything on them goes into its mouth. The "thing" is white, has small feelers, or tenticles.
    Any ideas !!! is it good or bad ????

    I'd say it's a vermetid snail. These are sesile creatures and are often found attached to rocks, clam shells and sometimes bony areas of corals. They are harmless but they can spread.

    I'd say FLAME is right. while there harmless they can multiple fats and disfigure corals and even irritate them with all the wegs. I'd get rid of it.

    Just take out the ones that you can whenever you see them. If there's one, I'm sure they'll be more sooner or later.
