    Ok this guy is new, I just did a water change and scraped all my glass. I did a scrub of my skimmer because it seemed clogged.

    When I turned the lights back on this thing was on the glass, good or bad?

    Its flat, white and has 2 little eyeballs on the top.

    I believe that's a stomatella snail, it has a very thin, flat shell on top. Very good for your tank.

    I would disagree stomatellas look more slug like. Maybe a type of chiton?

    Agreed. Especially with the "two little eyeballs". Flatworm.

    Flatworm! Eek! Kill it! Treat your tank with Flatworm Exit before you see an epidemic of them.
