Looks like some kind of sea slug, though I haven't found an exact match.  There are a lot of species!

edit: closest I've seen is dermatobranchus striatus

I dont think it that, as it not got any blue in it and no gills at the back. looks alot like dermatobranchus striatus. Im guessing it be best to get rid as think it been munching the zoas in the tank

I found many mentions of this species eating briareum (aka star polyps), but not really any other corals.  However if there is any doubt i'd get rid.

Thanks:
