  1. Default Freshwater Limpets

    I have had these appear in my 10g occasionally over the past couple years. I guess they have come in on plants, but I didn't realize what they were until recently--indeed, I didn't even know there was such a thing. None of them have lived to get beyond the baby stage, so I don't know if something is eating them (the tank is stocked with nerites, cardinals, and pygmy cories) or if they just aren't getting what they need.

    Anybody keep these, intentionally or otherwise? What do they need? Where do they originate? I would actually be interested in keeping some--they are kind of fascinating.

    I had some come in on plants and before I knew it I have them everywhere. They would cover my glass in my sons aquarium. Well I got a few Asssasin Snails, and the limpets are no more. The snails wiped them out completly.

    Did they crawl around like snails, or pretty much stay in one spot? Just wondering.

    I never actually saw them move, you would just see the tank in the morning and they would be all over the glass. I would guess tehy are nocturnal or at least timid.
