Good or bad hitchhiker?

Picked up this little leather from the local fish store. the next day I noticed this little creature on it. I removed it not knowing if it was good or bad just in case is there anything else I need to do? Also found this little pinhole at the base of the leather.

Yeah, nudibranch living on a coral is probably bad news. Most are obligate feeders so they do not wander far from their food source.
