slugs?

I have noticed two different "slugs" is what they look like, but i have no idea where they would have come from. I have a number of turbo snails in my tank and what these slugs look like is a turbo snail (looks like the same snout and antenna) but with out a shell. And just this morning i saw one point its mouth in the air and shoot what looked like bubbles out into the tank like 5 times then slithered away.
And before anyone asks i cant seem to ever get a decent picture of these things, but will try. I am just curious if anybody has any ideas if they are harmful or not

I was able to get a picture of mine at night, they hide during the day, I've attached a pic of mine. They are excellent grazers

They come in many colors :)

I love them, my favorite member of the cuc.

I have seen two spawning occurences in the past 2 weeks. They point straight up and one shoots eggs and one shoots milt. The "bubbles" were probably eggs.

Duane that black one is awesome!

wow that one is cool too! I love them because they are all so unique. Sushi has a cool orange shiny one I like, kinda bronze

My reef shop dude let me go on a stomatella hunt and I had a blast picking them from all the live rock. Took a while but I found about a dozen. Two of my favorites are a baby pink one with very light green stripes and a black one with white stripes. Those two spawned last week, wonder what will come of it

I'm not sure the second one is a stomatella. I'd like to see different angles. I love the black one tho. I've never seen one. I had a bunch in my old tank, but my cleaner shrimp wiped them out. Now the one's I have are not as pretty as far as color goes. I see a lot of babies on the glass the last couple days.
They are my favorite snail.
Old pic.
