Mine do not.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian

Snails don't eat coraline as far I know. The only thing I've heard will eat it is a tuxedo urchin. Mine eats some off the glass but not the rocks that I can tell.
