Description
Key Hole Limpets are something not frequently seen in the hobby. However, these guys are algae eating magnets!! Spending their time mainly on the glass, they will venture onto the sand providing it is of a fine grade and will clean off hair algae and even Cyanobacteria algae quite quickly.
Diet
Will stay mostly on glass and hard surfaces eating film algae. Occasional offerings of Nori (seaweed) wrapped rocks placed near the glass are good for supplemental feedings if insufficient food source is unavailable.
