Does it move slowly? Looks like a chiton or polyplacophora. Herbivorous.

Yes, it moves very slow. I barely noticed him cuz he kinda blends in with the red coraline. It never strays far from the shroom...always going back underneath it when the lights come on.

thnx

looks like a bristle worm. some of them are ok but too many of them is not good.There are some butterfly fish and angels that will help before it becomes a problem.

Are you able to count how many sections make up his body? This will help a great deal in identifying.

It has 8 sections. I guess it's a chiton?

Yep, Chiton. A fun, non-threatening hitch hiker.
