    it looks like a bubble shell, one of the Hydatina species (possibly Hydatina physis).
    Very closely related to nudibranchs, they have extremly specialist diets and will be close to impossible to keep in your tank.

    No problem!
    This guy is not reef safe. I see in the pic it as sand on top of its shell. So im assuming its already started digging and looking for polycheate worms.
