    Never heard of a turbin snail using chemical defense. My guess it's releasing gammets and the fish swimming by is just coincidence.

    They are eating the white stuff and the fish that are eating it are a Percula Clown a Coral beauty a cherub angel and a Pacific sailfin tang.

    I thought i heard somewhere that it is them spawning. you may see baby snails soon.
    it happened in my tank a while ago and i took the snail out cuz i was freaked out about it. im pretty sure its not going to hurt anything
