    I spotted this white creature growing on the inside of one of the hermits shell.
    Could you help with an ID please and let me know what I should be doing about it if anything.

    Thx

    Jip. Looks like a feather duster. They are filter feeders.
    You do not need to do anything about it. If the hermit does not appreciate it in its shell, it will just leave the shell and get another one. Since it appears to be ok with the duster in its shell, you can just leave it be.
