they are kind of cool looking, how long does it take for them to get that big?

Months. I got this from a friend when it was almost dead. I put some on another rock to see how it grows without the vermatids. I don't really care for this particular piece but there it is.

Anemoneman,

Awesome pic of the Vermetids. I have a page dedicated to them on the site for our old 75g tank - here: Vermetid Snails

I don't think that's what these are, though. Any chance of a closer pic? Are they just spots, or do they look "curly", or do they have 'legs' like spiders?

Some type of "spot" would be indicative of an egg. A "curly" shape might be a spirobid worm, which is a small feather duster. Here is a close up pic of these:

.

That is from this site: http://web.uvic.ca/~reimlab/Snails.html

Hydroids look like "spiders" (white spots with legs):



That picture (and more info.) is here:

HTH!!

Wow cool links, no mine aren't curly, they are like white eggs, and I have a few of the hydroids, is that good or bad?

The hydroids won't hurt anything, and will most likely dissapear as quickly as they appear.

Ok, thanks, so if it isn't Vermetid and it's not any of the other on the links you gave, it is the shape of an egg, oval looking with a milky white outer layer and there is a beige like center in it, they are really multiplying like crazy especially if I have scraped some of them off the glass it seems the next day there are more of them. They are even on the back of my turbo snails, I'll try and get a pic of it.

Hope these don't turn out something bad because the tank really seems to be going good.

Thanks for your help!

Ok, I found the Turbo, he was in the corner, they are on his shell and also all over the back and sides of the tank. I tried to get a better pic close up but camera won't focus on it, I will have to read up more on the manual.
