Hitchhiker Mollusc?

I don't have a picture yet but I was just gonna try to jog some memory, if anyone has any of this creature. My fiance' noticed it first. In a hole in a LR, there is this brown-shelled something. She said it reminded her of FW muscles. its about 1/2" the diameter of a penny, and can extend and retract into a small pile of shell. As good as I can tell, his shell looks segmented, but thick. I can't see any antennae yet, but i'm trying to get a picture. Probably won't ring any bells, but I'll try to get a pic up.

Sounds like a type of rock boring bi-valve, of which I could be more specific without a pic (mabye not even then ). You will find many of these on the LR from time to time. They will also migrate to other places in the tank.
