Protozoa?

Found this all over my gorgonian. Polyps not coming out and they few that do are not fully extended. It is also under the rock the coral is mounted on. Can anyone identity what it is any possibly how I got it and how to get rid of it. I have already done a Coral RX dip that did nothing.

Ammonia 0
Trites 0
Trates 5ppm
dKH 12.5
Ca 425
SG 1.024

Pull it out to do another dip in coralRX. Take a picture close up. It could be anything from a flat worm, nudibranch, to a fungus. Just simply can't see anything.

Thanks. My LFS that owns a coral farm thinks it is bacterial. He suggested an iodine bath.
