Couldn't sleep last night so I go downstairs

and turn on my living room lights at about 3 am. I look into my tank and there are like thosands of tiny white snails in the tank. The glass, the rock, everything is covered. Kinda had a mini freak out but figured whatever, they're kinda cool.

This moring checked on the tank, NOT ONE of them visible. They must dissapear during the day. Where do they go, the sand? Reef tanks are crazy, I love em...

Certain they were snails? I see little Arthropods all over my tank at night. They kinda look like tiny white roley-poleys (if you know what they are, haha).

I have these snails too. I have no clue what they are. I don't mind them since i figure they clean my rocks and glass and are gone in the daytime.
