Turbo snails, that's spelled right. Hrmmmm, maybe you got a bad batch. Have you tested your parameters lately?
I would keep the Hydroid question in the ID section and post a pic (otherwise it sometimes gets confusing), so we can see if that is really what they are.

actually I feel bad cuz a lot of turbo snails had died in my tanks.
I used to have another tank but since I moved I left it for my friend.
the turbo snails wouldn't make it neither....ToT
and Yes I did check my parameters, everything its good (only nitrate 15~20ppm)
I just bought a reef test kit earlier today, I will check the Ca, kH after dinner.

You might want to try a different type of snail. Turbo's get to big anyway. I like nirites they are small and can get into all the crannies without knocking corals over.

This "the brown one that get all over my pipes" is most likely diatoms which will burn themselves out.
