    What is this? I set up my tank about 11 months ago and all of the sudden there is life everywhere even tho I started with dry rock. I have hundreds of baby tiny snails everywhere and slug looking things. The photo is one of the largest and about 1/2 inch long. Shell has not really formed as I thought it would at this size. What is this thing?[​IMG]

    Stomatella snail maybe. They are shell-less

    I googled Stomatella snail and I am sure that is what it is. Thank you ikesrk! Sounds like beneficial. Any other opinion?
