Is this a bad hitchhiker? Doesn't quite look like anemone shrimp

Found this on my first coral purchase... No idea if I should keep him or not. Please help? It swims backwards like shrimp, survived a dip in CoralRx. It isn't transparent... Kind of reddish.

Possibly. It kept its tail tucked under unless it wanted to swim somewhere quickly. Very tiny though, maybe the size of my thumbnail.

I ended up keeping it. He went back onto his coral rock. If he gets big and starts terrorizing anyone I will have to go hunting I guess.

That's what I would have done. Maybe sump banishment if he's a bad actor? Best case...raise him for a fancy lunch.
