Limpet ????????????

Well I finally go a better picture of my mystery thing. It looks like a limpet to me under something. Any ideas what this is and if it is good or bad?

Yep. It's a type of Keyhole Limpet. I'd watch it carefully if it gets on any soft corals but it's probably safe.

Try a web search on "Fleshy Limpet".

Thanks, well since I first saw 1 limpet I now see 8 not including this one. Looks like when I get my new rock in and will be in the tank, these will be finding a new home elsewhere.
