Are you saying you think it is limpet as in snails on the glass. Where would they come from? It was a tiny speck so I could not see it good but it did look like it was moving. I have not seen it again yet.

Thanks

If it is indeed a tiny speck crawling on the glass, that's a limpet. They can hitchhike on anything especially plants. Only overfeeding would cause them to overpopulate otherwise I'd leave them alone.

I dont have any live plants and have not added anything new to the tank. What is a limpet?? I have been feeding twice a day so the fry get to eat enough but only very small amounts. I have also upped the partial water change to 2 times a week to make up for the extra feeding. Should I do anything different???
