OMG Snails

holy cow guys. i have a major problem with snails in my 30g reef tank. as most of you guys know i started my tank about 4 or 5 months ago. mabey longer i cant remember. i started out with about 5-10 hermits and about the same in snails.
now i have white egg looking pods all over my LR and in my refuge.
there are hundreds. and all but a select few have shells. the rest look like little white slugs. some of them are so small you have yo stick your face up to the glass to be able to tell what they are.
would a six line walrus take care of this problem? if not what should i do?

I`ve had eggs in my tank but IME they mostly get eaten by alot of fish and very few ever make it to anything substantial.

Doesn't sound like snails....can you get a picture? Do they move?

I didn't think they sounded like snails either...more like flatworms. A pic would help a lot though!
