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.

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'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

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???
