white smoke coming out of liverock

Hey guys today I noticed white smoke coming out of a live rock. I look at the source and I see some white object retract back into the rock and the white smoke stops. The smoke just disappears instantly.

Happened a few times already. What is going on?

It's cured.

I looked up vermatid snails on the web. Looks like that could be it. Thanks hehe.
