It's most likely some type of nudibranch. It is very hard to say w/out a pic exactly what it is and if you should remove it. You may be able to get an ID here-

To me it sounds like Stomatella varia. It actually has half a shell. It's a very good algae grazer and will reproduce easily in your tank. Not harmful at all.

Check there, nine pictures down.

I thought I had a slug, but it was a stomatella. Here is my post with a pic of what I had.
