Critter ID Please :)

I have a couple of these growing on some LR I bought.

These good guys or bad guys? When bumped by a passing snail or fish they retract.

Thanks in advance!

YAY!

I had been reading some of the horror stories from other members about having to replace/clean/destroy harmful hitchhikers. I am so glad to hear that this one is ok.

Phew!

Thanks for the responses
