Hello, dear reefers,
Just want to check if any of you seen this kind of snails. Want to check if they are reef safe or not.https://www.dropbox.com/s/reip53ypj9fhm7o/20161117_211637.jpg

Those are limpets. They are generally reef safe, although I have heard some say that some species can harm SPS corals. I have some in my tank and have not seen any problems with them.

I can't see the pictures but assuming everyone is correct, they are reef safe. I have a ton in my tank and have never seen them near any of my corals.
