I assume you mean the thing at the back of the tank? On the left.

hard to say. it depends on what type they are. there are many. when did you start seeing these? do you have any coral in the tank at this time?

I saw them two about 3 days ago. They are really small and I saw them 4 days ago after bringing a frag of star polyps and s leather coral with some button polyps attached to the rock.

well, there are zoa eating nudibranchs that resemble the ones on your glass, but it's hard to tell without a clearer picture.
here, this guy took a few shots-
