Is this a limpet?

Is this a limpet, and if so what kind? It does appear to have a small hole in the apex of it's shell. Keyhole limpet????

Yep. Keyhole Limpet. These are actually not Limpets but details hardly matter Keep it away from your Leather corals but it will clean a rock of algae better than any other critter I know of.

If you wake up breathing CONGRATULATIONS!!! You get another chance to do it right.
