What is this ? looks like a slice of a snail

This morning I have what appears to be a slice of a snail moving along the glass of the tank. The two turbo's I have are still there. This thing is the pale tan color of a snail and has about the same foot print but no body and of course no shell.

Is this a new snail or is this some kind of paper thin slug ?

Odd.

Sounds like it could be a flatworm. I'll dig up a pic for you to compare.

Yes, it is a flatworm.

When it moved to the side glass I could check out the other side and see the pale red spots. Odd I've never seen it before. Gone this morning. Obviously a very private creature.

Thanks,
