Hey 3veryone! Please help me to I'd this creature. Its orange in color, looks almost jelly type but has 2 tentacles and a spout type mouth just like a type of Snail. I have no clue what this thing is or if it's harmful. Sorry it's the best pic I can get as it stays under something all the time.

I wouldn't be alarmed, if you watch him he's probably grazing for algae on rocks. Beautiful guy. Do keep an eye on him. If you see him munching on corals, toss him out. I am going to say he's an algae eater.

Not my picture, does he look like this guy?

Just looked him up and sure enough that was spot on. Don't think I need to be so nervous now. I have a good bit of limpets and they keep multiplying, so that makes sense! Thanks again
