It looks like a nudibranch, definitely a problem when around coral, keep an eye out for more of them.

That's the second I found on the glass. They are zoanthids eaters ?

My tank is a zoa dominated tank

Since I introduced the infected rock, my zoas colonies does not more look like colony, but more like "single polyps"... Don't know how to explain... The creep is less like a creep... How to get rid of them ? I have few LPS, mush and a lot of zoanthids.

Can I remove them with my finger, or I should keep removing them with pincettes ? Anyways, they are ugly.

I've seen people suck them up with a turkey baster to get rid of them. Maybe see if anything eats them... Everything has some form of predation

Suck them out I'd think. Maybe someone knows of a crab that eats them. Nudibranchs are not exactly fast creatures, so collecting them in a turkey baster might work for you

Okk, but I only saw two in the last two weeks... I removed them with long pincettes...

I don't like crabe, as most of them aren't reef safe and they hide quite good when it's the time to sell/give them...

may a Iodine dip + RODI dip of all zoas rocks help ?

That is actually a great idea, that should get rid of any left I would think. Best of luck with them, hope it works out for you
