Snail parasite?

Okay so today i woke up and i noticed something on my snail today. Its bright pink and its sticking to i say the edge of his shell/ skin. I though it was just food that got stuck there so i looked at it some more and it looks like tiny pink worms growing on him. there really small and only 4-5 of em.

Any ideas on what they are?

If they are what I had, then yes, they are snails. I noticed 4 or 5 of them myself, but they were on the filter hose and on a couple of leaves of the plants. They ate the brown algae like there was no tomorrow so I let them be. They don't grow big at all, and I think after awhile your Betta will eat them (I suspect this is what happened to them as I've only seen one of them moving around the past week).
