    Looks like a nudibranch, i normally remove unless can definitively id as most are specific in diet. And will either a die from no food and most ate toxic or b eat corals you want.

    Well by the time I went to go remove him he was in the sand and where I couldn't get to him anymore.

    But did capture a video of him.

    Looks like a Elysia slug. Safe. They eat filamentous algae and Caulerpa.
