Strange Inverts in 55g???

Hey Everyone,

While looking closely at my plants and driftwood in my 55g I noticed some (5+) tiny inverts of some kind on the large stump and on the stems of a few of my crypts. They are less than a centimeter in overall length and look like Apistasia you get in a marine tank! They have a tube looking main body with 4 or 5 tentacles. They react when I touch them with tweezers by retracting their tentacles and shrinking! I have watched pond snails touch them, and the snails don't seem to be bothered/stung by them.

Does anyone know what they are, and how to get rid of them???

Thanks for the help!
