Could be a few things:

Chiton
Stomatella varia
Seaslug or nudibranc (good luck there)
Or the off chance a peanut worm

As always, the best ID method is a pic. :P

Cheers
Steve

Stomatella varia

~Stomatella varia~

Cooool! I found a couple of these guys in my new 10G critter tank. THANKS for helping identify. I have been trying to get a picture, but it's easier said than done.
