    Some type of bivalve, put it back, they are innocent little filter feeders and don't do any harm to anything in your tank :) I have a couple on my rocks.

    Agreed with Viper,

    They are lovely to have, shows a good stable tank and do a great job in filtering. come in many different variations too. When you replace it, try keep it stable in the same possition it is in now so that its food can reatach to the LR.
