Ive seen these before, but now I'm seeing more of them around my overflow, before I would see them on glass in sump. What do they feed on? Are they hitchhikers? Should I remove them? Any input would be appreciated , thanks.

They look like limpets - if they are they should be harmless grazers. I have some in my refugium that came in as hitchhikers.

The picture is not the best...I guess limpets or chitons. Both are harmless and should be left alone.

Looks like limpets. At least the ones that are large enough to tell the exact shape LOL. Limpets look like volcanos, chitons look like pill bugs (roly polys).
