The Sand Conch is a suitable addition to any home reef aquarium, where it will use its excellent sand sifting abilities to clean and aerate the substrate.
Praised for their hardiness, the Sand Conch requires open, deep sand beds in which it can forage for food. Though multiple Sand Conches should be housed in larger systems, single specimens are suited for any size reef aquarium. Keep in mind that the Sand Conch has a voracious appetite; as such, supplemental feeding is required in smaller systems and recommended in even the largest aquarium setups.
Classified as an omnivore, the Sand Conch will consume detritus from your aquarium substrate. Supply pieces of fresh fish and dried seaweed, as well as high quality frozen foods to supplement the diet of the Sand Conch.
Like other invertebrates, the Sand Conch is sensitive to high levels of nitrate and will not tolerate copper-based medications.
