keep an eye on him as alot of the more unusual types of the forementioned are specialty feeders and might be consuming something that is desireable.if not then bonus hitchiker.i have had money cowries and green stomatellas come in on rock but that looks pretty cool.if you can get a better pic at some point post it.

some kind of sea triton maybe? looks cool, but not worth it if its eating something cool in the tank, but im inclined to think that if you havent noticed the damage and its been in there for a while i doubt its eating anything too important...
interesting creature...
