weird looking snail type thing

Today i have noticed a type of snail looking thing. It doesnt appear to have a normal snail shell and its a light yellow in colour.

Anyone know what it is and if its good or bad?

Any info will be greatly appreciated

cheers buddy. Just done a quick forum and google search and it seems they are full of toxins and some will eat corals. Think i'll get the little bugger out. Dont want to stress it though, because it may release toxins.

given the size, don't think toxins will be an issue. Interested to hear they are coral munchers though as I've had them in the past, seemed to die off on their own however

I had some come in on some Zoas, picked them off the ones I saw with tweezers as I thought they would munch the zoos, better check my Monti now
