It is a plastic veggie clip, duh!

The critter on the veggie clip is a Limpet. Likely a Keyhole Limpet (similar to snails). I have a bunch of these in my tank. They are reproducing and growing at a decent rate. Some people have reported that they munch on corals. I think mine may be eating coraline algae, but luckily my algae is spreading faster than they can eat it.

A lot of things get called Keyhole Limpets, the one you have is not likely to end up looking like the one on LiveAquara. Here is a detailed Limpet listing for a better ID:

Your appears to be one of these, or something close to it:
