I posted this in the hitch hiker forum with no luck. This snail is very small (Less than 1/8th in.)and it may have been hiding/feeding between zoa polyps. I have learned there are over 40k different kinds of snails, Yet only a few are known to eat/damage corals. Thats encouraging lol. I will be dipping the frags if they even go to the DT. They don't look so good atm. recovering from Irma.
Do y'all think this lil bugger is reef/coral safe?

I think it's a juvenile cerith, but hard to tell from the single pic. If so, it will be harmless.

TYVM, If it was recently hatched then there will be more eggs. I'll be watching closely for any more. I was going to buy some Dwarf Ceriths. I'll wait and see if I can get more for free lol.
