    not siure what I'm looking at, but it looks like a Stomatella snail.

    Is it a snail?

    No not a snail.
    Closest idea I get is a barnacle type thing.
    2 black feeler and I think a head type thing.
    It's definitely a hard crust house.
    Tried to upload a video but no luck

    Has a hard crust tube house.

    @CheriS I think you nailed it.
    Pics in Google look the same.
    And the stringy stuff is visible aswell.
    Will read up.
    Take it that it's good
