    The week-end when I clued some coral on to the fake rock I saw this slug and I saw another one like this before in my tank and took it out. This one I left as it is doing no harm as yet. You dont see this slug offen in my tank. Now and then you see him.

    What is this realy - see pic. :(
    If you touch it ,it pulls up in to a ball. It got a hard peace of shell on it's head. any Idea?

    It is a type of snail, Stomella if I'm not mistaken. They breed like crazy, my one tank has millions. They are a good thing.
