its probably a flatworm of some sort. i would remove it for the fact that ou dant knoe if its good or bad. and if you have corals it may eat them.

back to the flatworm, i looked into that and you are correct, he is harmless except to snails, which i found 2 empty shells and im guessing the flatworm is the killer. he just lost a home. thanks

there are different flatworms from what I've read, some are real bad others are a nuisance, this one is bad for snails, clams and a few other things. It hasn't bothered any others, I'm waiting till it comes out to remove from tank, maybe tonight it will be out.
