    Hi All

    Found this on my tube worm today, it has a black half rounded softish top side and the bottom looks like little feet ( sorry for pics ).

    Is it something to keep or hunt?

    Thanks

    Leaches don't have feet.
    Are the feet in rows?

    The bigger ones have two horn like growths on the top side. I've tried to get photos but they are on the back end of the tank. Smooth top with 2 horns

    personally I thought yours looks more like a supernova.
    mine is a flashy blur.

    jokes aside - maybe it's a keyhole limpet?
