A baby in my tank?

Something has bred in my tank .... Turned lights off and discovered a small mollusc climbing up the glass. About 5-7mm in size. I have turbo snails, one conch who has been lonesome for 3-4 months and also recent addition of a sea hare. I'm guessing either sea hare was pregnant when I got it (?) or turbos have bred but it doesn't appear to have shell. When do they develop shells? Tried to take photo but pretty crap.
Also I bought a new coral a few weeks ago so maybe a totally new inhabitant?
Any suggestions ? Ta!!

Stomatella snail. Just a regular old hitch hiker.

Aha! Googled images and yes that's exactly what it looks like. Thanks. That's a relief- don't have enough algae for another sea hare!
Good value for money with my last coral then I guess...?
