We need a better pic. What does the other side look like? Take a pic through the side pane. It's in the refugium anyway, correct? It's safe there.

Hard to tell still. Limpet maybe? Or starfish.
Hard shell like a snail?

Ya, they come in all shapes and sizes with between 0 arms up to six. I'm pretty sure I saw one with even more. Strange little buggers. Keep them away from zoanthids and they are harmless.
