Common Name: Limpet
Scientific ID: Patellidae Family
Good/Bad: Good

Description
A Limpet is a type of aquatic snail. A good addition to the clean up crew, which spends most of its time blending in with the rock work and on the glass of the aquarium. They are of a conical, dish shape and are usually a light grey in colour.
Good grazers for algae on rock work, usually stay around 0.5" - 1" in size, rarely bigger.
