Saltwater sluge?

I have a 55g reef tank and I got home from work and checked my coral because my sea urchin likes to knock corals over and I saw a slug looking thing on the wall. When I turned on the lights it slide very fast down the back wall. Any ideas what it is?

Yeah, at least you'd need to provide size, color, and I'm guessing shape is classic slug

That's a california sea hare, I've had them before, very neat

or more like a lettuce nudibranch

I agree, looks like a stomatella to me.

Good job getting a pic of it, that's not always easy to do!

Are they good, bad, don't matter? Any ideas where it came from? I haven't added any rock or anything.

They're great for a reef, make a good clean-up crew item to have. They do breed/reproduce heavily, however.
