Slug/snail things

Sorry I don't have a pic, but I was hoping someone could help me out here. I have a bunch of these things that look like slugs and they have little hard shells on thier backs. They are usually on my live rock or the walls of the tank sucking up algae. These things are really staring to tick me off cause I dont know what they are or how to get rid of them. They seem to reproduce like mad. If anyone might know what they are or how to get rid of them I would greatly appreciate it.
