The white line is a young vermitid snail, not exactly bleaching. Happened to a couple in my tank because I believed they wouldn't hurt anything since they were on the other side of the tank. Was wrong as their young ended up in various placed around the tank because I left them go unchecked. Don't believe it, here you go.
Vermetid snails are bad for stony corals, coral crabs keep em in check

Interesting page. I have not observed any of that white stringing film, and it does not have an elongated tube either.

I wasn't saying I didn't believe it. I just dont agree that they kill corals. I have a ton in my tank and see no ill effects.

I'll take and post a picture of my scroll coral that was rubbed raw by the webs. It didn't die, but is a isn't a tiny frag. About half of it survived.

Here is the picture of what it did to my coral. You can see where the tissue died off and then became home to the algae I'm currently battling.

To the OP, use a needle or a pin to break the tube it is in and either pull it out or stab him.
