I can't get my camera to focus on the small things, so I have to just describe it...

It's smalll now, maybe half the size of a dime. The shell is pretty circular with points around the edges. It's not completely flat and has somewhat of a point in the middle, but it's a very shallow shell. I haven't been able to look underneath, and it hasn't left the rock I found it on first, but it does move around. I did some digging on the interweb and haven't been able to find the right picture.

I got this rock from Liverocks.com. Any ideas?

a limpet maybe? I have lots of them but they don't have pointed edges. They do have a skirt around their bottoms though that could give a pointed appearance. Check here. There are some pics of a few different types of snail hitchhikers.

I think it's a limpet. And knowing this, I will keep watch on them around my xenia.

Thanks!
