Looks like a green pipefish to me. Similar in care as seahorses usually for these fish.

This worm-like creature is crawling on the glass of my local Petco.

Im glad you responded. I didn't look at it very close. The wonders of shrunken images. Looks like maybe some sort of flatworm maybe. Not seen one like that before.

I thought it was a crack in the glass as I was walking up to it. Are flatworms considered a pest? Or not harmful?

It isn't a flatworm that I'm familiar with, if that is one. But you look at it, and you can see similarities and so on. I'm more familiar with flatworms that eat acropora or small brown ones that though I've never been presented with any evidence of them consuming coral, when the numbers explode in a system they simply starve photosynthetic corals of light and they die.
This guy just doesn't match a species I'm familiar with maybe.
