Tons of Little Snails

Every night when I turn my lights off I see within an hour about fifty little snails on my glass. I have a friend with a tank that has been up a lot longer than mine and he has the same thing, but with one difference - mine are a zillion times larger.

My friend's snails are just big enough that if you put your nose to the glass you can tell that they are snails. Mine are approaching half an inch in size. I have astreas in my tank (which these seem to resemble some.) Did one of them multiply, or do you think these things popped out of my sand/rock and they won't get any bigger?

- Gauge

92-gallon corner tank, 100lbs of LR, 140lbs of sand, 250watt 10,000K MH, 110watts of actinic PCs, Mag 7 return, custom refugium, AquaC EV180 w/ Mag 5

Female lyretail anthias, eyelash blenny, tomato clown, saddleback clown, firefish goby, 2 sand-sifting stars

Probably stomatellas from your LR, they are a common hitchiker, but that is just a guess, hard to ID without a pic.
