Looks like the white thing is a Malaysian trumpet snail.

That white thing was a piece of food for them. Lol. It grew from the biofilm. I also just got my order of shrimp in. It came with a string inside. I’m assuming I toss that out?

Here’s a picture of my upgraded 3gal tank. Waiting for stuff build up before adding the little ones. Also does anybody know what that “webbing” is?!? It stretches around the rocks and from the macroalgae. Thanks

Give it a few more weeks and it'll happen eventually. :) My guess is that if your snails are happily grazing around that your tank is already ready for shrimp. But you can wait for the algae to be 100 percent sure.
