    pretty cool, i never seen it before but i will take a wild guess and say it might be some kind of sponge or worm??

    Someone here will probably know.

    That's a nudibranch. I've seen pics before of that exact same type, too. But I can't remember where :(

    Definitely a nudibranch.Most of the hitchhiking nudibranches are some kind of coral predator.....be weary.
