I've got a bunch of these popping up all over the tank and frag plugs. Seem like vermitid snails but can anyone confirm please? Pic isn't great but they are upside down at the edge of the rack. If they are is there any reason to keep or get rid of them? Thanks!

You are correct. Let 'em grow. They are part of what makes a healthy reef aquarium. They have a fascinating way of capturing food. They send out a sticky mucous net. Particles in the water floating by will stick to the net. After a little while the net is drawn back and most everything, including the net, is eaten. This helps clean the water and in turn makes the aquarium cleaner. Thumbs Up
