Limpet infestation

I have tons of limpets. They're not harming my plants, but they are unsightly. The glass of my tank looks totally spotted. Anyway to get rid of them?

Correct me if im wrong, I'm no expert, but I would look into some of the loach species. I know that some will eat snails which are similar to limpets.

I got some in as hitchhikers on a trade so I am cool on them. I really don't see them being a problem so I added them to one of my 10's. If you really don't like them post some for trade. I bet you will be suprised by how many responces you get. Really post some.
