And here's a link to a thread that warns about the dangers of adding assassin snails to a tank with shrimp in it.
They will eat them just as Soothing Shrimp has said.
I'm not willing to lose any shrimp just to get rid of some limpets.
I will try the oebt or nerite method first.
And if those don't work then maybe some baby assassins as a last resort.
