Keyhole Limpets ate my Sponge
I had a couple of bright green sponges in my tank, growing very slowly but they were neat to look at. Yesterday, I caught two Keyhole Limpets on one of the sponges, just figured they were wandering. Instead of wandering, they ate the whole Sponge. A couple months ago, I suspected the Limpets of eating my Yellow Button Polyps but never caught then on it. Well, now that sponge is gone and I have to go on a Limpet hunt.
Should I take them out of the tank, or just kill them in the tank and let the other inverts eat them? I figure I can stab them with a knife two at a time and let the clean up crew eat them.
