Anyone know what these are?

They look like algae grazers - have the mouth of an astrea snail, but are SUPER FAST. Shell has no spiral to it - looks more like a cupped hand or something. Anyway, I didn't think much about them until I found one 'spawning' in my frag tank. They release eggs or offspring or whatever directly into the water column. Since then, I have been executing them on a regular basis - but for every one I kill, I suspect there are 20 I don't see. Not sure if they're OK or not, but I just realized that there are babies in plague proportions in the frag tank. Anyone have an ID? I've only seen one in the main tank EVER - so I assume my bluejaw trigger is making a meal of them as they appear.
