Snails on Zooz?

I have some hair algae trying to grow in the middle of my zoos....not bad, but barley visible......my snails have started to crawl onto the zoos....will this hurt them, or just clean in between the polyps for the zoos?

They are just cleaning, IME. If the snails are "on" the polyps, u've got a problem

No, there is no space on the rock that isnt covered in zoos....

The snails are resting on top of the polyps(closed of course) the entire time they are on the rock.

That happens all the time in my aquarium, as well as crabs and starfish. They all crawl across the zo's. As soon as they travel on, the zo's open up again. Harmless.

IME Well I have 2 bumble bee snails and they craw in and out of the zooz eating all the crap on it and cleaning them. The zooz close when their cleaing them nd when their done the zooz open up withing 3 minutes. The bigger snails I would watch out for. You should be fine.
