    Hey, I have been looking for my peppermint shrimp (which dissapeared amongst the rocks~) with a small LED torch... and look what i found (not Mr Minty):

    [​IMG]

    Not one... but LOTS!! Max 3mm diameter...They seem to be mainly on the LR-

    What are they eating?!
    Do they get bigger?!
    Are they going to take over?!
    Am i paranoid?

    Hehe, new parent syndrome- got my first few fishies!

    im no expert but that is either a keyhole limpet or a sponge that looks like a limpet. as far as i know limpets are harmless as pie, sponges even more harmless than flies....i think flies are more dangerous actually....
