Its inevitable, good, bad, indifferent, it will somehow find it's way into your tank.

I have always like keyhole limpets, I have always thought they were cool little critters along with chitons.

I wondered not too long ago if I would ever get them as a hitchhiker. Well this morning I was checking my overflow box which I rarely check and low behold, I have a small army of keyholes living in the overflow and nowhere else in the tank that I can see and I mean a lot of them there must be close to 30 or so in there.

Speaking of gold were you able to order the peppermint shrimp or did you go in a different direction ? Wasn’t sure if they were in stock !.

I’m still awaiting my dream and “last” hitchhiker to face, this guy
Looking Coral Reef GIF by Monterey Bay Aquarium


All jokes aside, I love it when I get a new hitch hiker and didn’t dip my newest SPS on purpose and actually dont plan on dipping SPS anytime soon (My hopes to find a hitchhiking bryaninops goby is still there). I’d also love to get a hitchhiking snail or limpet as I have never come across one over here.
