Phyto Feast & Chiton

While dosing my display aquarium this morning with Randy Reed's Phyto Feast and Clam & Coral Diet, I came across this beautiful Chiton. Chitons come in on live rock and multiply readily in an aquarium. They graze on filamentous algae, cyanobacteria and diatoms. They are very slow moving creatures and tend to move less than a foot a year.
