Larva of some kind. What kind of snails do you have? Harmless btw. I was asking because most wrasses will eat these things. Other fish, not so much.
Thanks for the swift response. I have few turbos and trochus snails.

No wrasses here. I need to add few fish to my system for sure.

Some of the acro's that were not growing so well started loosing flesh and algae started taking hold. I traced the problem to me dropping ALK from 9.7 to 8.9 in couple of days but the acro's affected were not doing well to begin with.

I just this morning dosed Vibrant.to the tank for the little algae I have on the rocks and sand. Will see how that turn out!

Keep an eye out on the acros for any pests. Bugs usually surface at night and munch on them.
Yeah I was worried that was the reason for some acro's dying. I inspected with flashlight at night and couldn't see any. Was afraid I have acro eating flat worms!!

I recieving a shipment of some super high end acro's this next week but now I'm thinking of holding till I figure out the Vibrant dosing affects and the stability of the tank in couple weeks span!!

It's also weird how I never saw these critters till today! Right after I dosed vibrant really! Coincidence??
When you stop and start looking closer at things, you'll see a lot you've never noticed before.
My clowns never cared to eat snails in any life stage. My wrasse loves them all. So I don't see many larva anymore :(
