Something from live rock

I noticed a critter that looked like a pink slug, almost like the bottom part of snails that you see with no shell. It climbed out of the live rock to a high point And started puffing out stuff- I presume eggs or gametes. I took a picture but it is hard to see, any ideas? I looked through the id websites and didn't see it. Thanks Click image for larger version

Might be an abalone (sp) had one as a hitchhiker puffed a small cloud while traveling around the tank. Never knew what the cloud was, kinda cool though

Looks like a stomatella. I have them, and I have seen mine do that before. from what I gather, they are spitting eggs.
What did the fish say when he swam into a wall? "Dam!"
