:unsure: Hi everyne :

Can anybody helps me to identified this please:

 

Is it good or bad ?. It is soft, silicone like texture and color and I presume it's a kind of worm. It won't move and it's attached to the rock

A sponge maybe. Or maybe some neglected remnants of a leather coral. Those are just guesses. I'm sure someone on here can give you a more definitive answer.

 

Edit, does it have holes anywhere? Sponges have water intake and outlets.

Also I found some tiny snail as a hitchickers from my Vanuatu LR. Because these are rocks from real reefs, should I presume that they are reef safe? I assume thy're algae grazers because they roam through the glass

I don't think is dead and looks pretty much alive to me. I feel that there is "something" inside

Never presume anything is reef safe. In fact, coral predators are generally ONLY found on reefs. Post a pic or look here for an ID

Ok thanks for the tip. But the snail it's so small that I won't be able to take a picture of it.

This is the best I can do. It's less than 1 mm in diameter

Make sure its a snail and not a flatworm. I cant really tell from the picture

It is an snail. Have a conical conch (Nasarious style), and amtenna. I saw it with a big magnifier. Also I'm sure it's not a nudibranch

Does it have a shell? If so maybe a limpet or chiton.

IYes, it have a shell but still transparent. Maybe it just hatch yesterday. My tank it's four days old now

 

The other thing worries me more. Looks very creepy. Should I get ride of it, to be safe?

The other thing is stationary so you're safe. I'd take the snail out though if you can't get a proper ID. You see it today, but you may never see it again until one day you have 100 of them and they're damaging your livestock.
