IMO, it sounds and looks like a vermetid snail.

The second picture looks like Brown Button Polyps. I have them in my tank and they came from out of nowhere. I started with 1 or 2 and now in 1 month, I have 7. It has made me look at them everyday now to see if I have anymore...I believe they will cover a rock like a mat..I hope so in my case, I like the center of the biggest one because it glows neon green in the actinic light...

It's hard for me to tell from the pic...are they coming from a stony skeleton, or are they soft all the way down to the rock. What I saw when I first looked was a coral with a skeleton.

Well, there there, it's just a hotlinking issue with net firms, I thought because the thumbnail was imbedded in an html page, it might link, but alas it didn't. If I get on the other computer tonight, I'll upload them and attatch.
