    Is it a living creature? Or is it drowing on your live rock? If you can remove it without killing it,place it in your sump till you get a positive Id on it,then u can decide whether to keep it,flush it or give it to someone who wants it. I can't really see what it is in the photos you posted.

    Difficult to make out what it is from the pic. Shape of a ray a would say. Is it swimming or stick to live rock and gliding over the rocks.

    It could also be white sponge. Thats why we need more info or a better pic. Is it something growing on the live rock or something moving around in the tank.
