What is this? Shell less snail?? 8-)

It's kinda hard to see, but it looks like a snail with no shell? I noticed it because it looked like it was releasing something into the water... 5 or 6 times, I could tell because of the wavy lines in the water (hard to describe) Soooo.. What is it, and what was it releasing into the water?? Thank!

Kinda hard to see... It's located under the shaded part of the rock that is the top portion, he's about 1/4 of the way down the rock...

Hey Ben,
Looks like a Stomatella snail, they are not a problem. Just another part of a CUC, pretty much. Not sure how they reproduce, but could have been "fertilizing" the water, so to speak!

And not to sound dumb here, but CUC=? Is it
short for cucumber? Or is it an acronym?
