They bloom twice a year for about a month each time, just wait and theyll go away. Right now they are blooming, same with my tanks.
I had about 5 in my 5g RCS tank. I let them lay eggs, then I removed them. They eventually ate every snail in the tank. So I don't know if they went for the limpets first or because that's all that was left. Now the assassins eat along side the shrimp (they really love replashy) since the snails are all gone.Awesome, I bought an assassin snail just in the hopes that he would get hungry enough to eat the limpets. He hasn't made a dent yet but I'm hopeful.
Haha that's what I thought until they exploded. Cute when there's one, REALLY unsightly when there's hundreds of little white flying saucer looking things attached to the glass.Just what is so bad about limpets?
It did for me. And it killed the mini-ramshorns. The only change in that tank was the Excel and they all started dying.I agree on the Excel not killing them, I triple dose Excel on my 50g high tech tank and its having a limpet bloom right now.
Like any other pests, it makes me feel like my tank is dirty. Like I made some noob mistake, like not dipping my plants or overfeeding. I guess they make me feel like I somehow failed. But I'm overly hard on myself.Just what is so bad about limpets?
