    There seem to be several dozen forming in my tank. I've read that this particular kind of limpit can be troublesome, although many report no problems whatsoever and that they really just feed on algae. What have been people's experiences?

    Nice ID for a newbie.:p
    Yes limpet, not too sure on specific ID.
    In some of my tanks they have flourished, green and film algae eaters. However, there are documented cases of a small similar limpet type eating Birds Nest/Seriatopora.

    I'm impressed on that ID as well! Isn't it so much fun finding new wildlife? :)
