Worm on snail shell?

Recommended Posts

Somebody found a home on one of my snails and I have the urge to scrape it off. Is this a vermetid snail? Should I try to get rid of it?

Looks like a feather duster tube worm to me @R2Dork, have you seen anything come out of it yet?

@Christopher Marks just looks like little antennas you can kind of see in the picture, haven't seen anything feathery. I think there's also a faint string or slime coming out of it. Barely visible to the bottom left of the photo.

Sounds like it could be a vermetid snail after all, based on the 'string'. I'd intervene and remove it from the snail shell while outside the tank.

What is the clear/white thing, up towards the top, past the middle. Hydroid?
