Questions about lights and snails

Hi all,
Just a couple questions. I am seeing a ton of teeny tiny snials all over the glass of my tank. I had a bloom of these guys back when my tank was at the end of cycling, but then they disappeared until now. I have sooo many of them. I would like to use my magnet to clean the glass (which I do daily) but have not done it for a couple days because of these guys. I don't really want to kill them, which I am guessing the magnet will do, but should I even worry about them?

Has anyone tried this light yet?

I currently have a TAO dimmable light, but I am not digging the look of the bulky hanging light, and I would LOVE to go with a programable light that sits over my tank under my canopy and offers dim moonlights, as this is in our bedroom. I will only be doing softies and LPS in my tank, so I think this light will be sufficient for my needs, but I was hoping to get some user input before I purchase.

What did the fish say when he swam into a wall? "Dam!"

The snails prob come from your live rock. I am starting to discover them also. Can you describe the snails? I have black ones that are spiral shaped and also tiny white snails.
