Snail fell into LTA

I was cleaning my tank today with my magnet cleaner, and I didn't realize there was an astrea snail affixed to the bottom of the magnet. The snail fell into my Long Tentacled Anemone, and I wasn't able to retrieve it. Will the LTA/hosting clowns expell the snail, or is this going to be a major problem? Seems like something that could cause major problems if ingested. The anemone has shrunk up now, but I think that was caused by me trying to retrieve the snail immediately after it fell in.

The anemone will end up spewing the snail out tomorrow probably.

Sure enough - woke up this morning, the snail was lying next to the LTA and it's opened back up again. Nice way to start the day
