What is this?????

Anyone know what this is???

Found it in my tank on the glass, moved into the sand after I put the light on, very slowly.

found out that it is called a Chiton, anyone have any idea if it is OK to be in my aquarium? I only have a couple of Damsels and some coral at the moment but would like to know if I am best trying to get rid of it or just leave it be???
