Your slug doesn't appear to be a nudibranch. It could be a chiton...but I would want to say some sort of elephant slug, which is a limpet if I remember correctly.
As for the anemone, it looks like a large majano really.

the nem is a condy

was thinking stominela

but looking at shell not 100% sure
could be a conch
compare yours and the other one almost look a like



shell is to rounded to be a limpit , limpits have more a pyramid shape

I'll look at it again when I'm on my home comp rather than my phone since pictures won't load on this comp.

That's a majano anemone. They spread very quickly and are hard to eradicate. I would figure a way to remove and/or destroy that before it becomes a serious problem. If you can remove the rock and scrape it off completely, that would work. Be careful not to tear it up inside the tank as any part of it that survives will spawn more.

If it's the first one pictured, they are harmless.
