Okay, I couldn't get a pic of it, but it looks like some kind of isopod. It has small black eyes and segmented body. White to grey in color.
It's fast and appears to crawl on the substrate and then appears to jump/swim as well. It does this in a circular motion, like it's doing back flips, but quick.
I have never seen it in my tank before, only saw early this morning at lights out. It was crawling in and out of my acan btwn the heads.

It's not quite in focus, but you'l be able to see the movement, what makes me think you have the same from your description
No, those are the ones I want in my tank. I researched o line and it looks just like an isopod.
I haven't seen any corals mysteriously closed up and I keep checking my fish and shrimp for any parasites on their bodies, so I'm holding thumbs that it isn't a bad one.
