If it is the same animal moving between the gsp and the hermit crab shell, then no, not a vermetid.

Stomatella is another type of snail often found in reef tanks. It differs from the usual snail anatomy in that it only has a sort of half shell on the top of its body and could  easily be mistaken for a slug.

I dunno if those "antennae" look like what you find on Stomatella:

IMO it looks like a nudibranch/sea slug of some kind.....a better photo would help tho!

gotta be some kind of nudibranch 

the one with the black tips I agree, doesnt look like a stoma to me, I had tons, 

 

the one in that new video looks too big to be the same nudi, and doesnt have the black tips. maybe another species of nudi, or maybe adult? im not sure,

have you noticed any coral issues?

Am I the only one who thinks the tiny hitchiker nudi is adorable? I mean, he has tiny cute black 'ears'! :wub:

(I'd keep him, but I might be biased here) :tongueout:

As long as he behaves, looks like a cool addition.

One of them has been going in and out of my struggling gsp. This picture was taken a while back

Looks like a nudibranch to me. The antennae are the giveaway. I would remove it from the tank.
