ID help.... no pic
 
:( Sorry guys.. no picture... he was gone before I could get back with the camera. A white/light grey gastropod of some sort... no shell, just a lump on its back about where you would expect a shell on a typical land snail. On the lump were a few small unremarkable frills/spikes. It had two eye stalks, and though I don't remember it, my wife said it also had a third tube. My initial thought was it was some sort of nudibranch, but it lacked any color, just a plain white or light grey all over. In total it was probably some where around a 1/2 an inch, and moved like a bat outta **!! across the glass. Used two alternating pulses of muscle on each side of the foot to move.

I know exact id may be impossible... but I'm wondering if anyone can take a stab at this thing, and let me know if I do see it again if I should aim to remove it from the tank, or at least move it to the fugue till better pictures can be obtained for ID. My tank is FOWLR right now, so little concern about it eating coral, but there are going to be a rock with button polyps on it added soon.

I'd say you are right thinking nudibranch. you can't risk it so I'd pull it out next time you see the little bugga.
