This Fleshy Limpet came in as a hitchhiker with some corals, and was simply stunning. It is very similar to the Keyhole Limpet, except for the soft meaty skirt that was extended as seen above. It only lived a few days in my frag tank, and I don't know why it died to be honest. Maybe it couldn't handle the intense lighting or the temperature of the water, but it really was a beautiful creature.
