    Looks like a stomata snail. Not a baddy.

    not nice pic
    but looks like stomatella. They are good guys


    but to the left, those are green bubble algae. Remove without popping it. They can spread like a weed. It is a weed.

    Use the rounded rear end of a spoon, nothing sharp, but anything else that small and hard enough. Lift it out like you would do something out the ground with a spade. They have a root like structure, not very strong.

    I've got some of the red bubbles, do they spread as easily as the green?
    Sorry for the hijack.
