Hitchhiker ID

So I'm completly new to the forum and salt water tanks in general, so hello! Writing this on a bit of a tiny emergencie as I recently introduced coral to the aquarium and I'm not the brightest of them all and decided to not dip and save money. Found this weird slug just now and need help knowing what it is and if I should kill it. Thanks.Click image for larger version
