The Fighting Conch makes a great addition to an aquarium set up. It eats up brown diatoms that grow on live sand beds, and rocks. Therefore, we recommend you to keep some live rocks in the tank that can encourage the growth of algae. The Fighting Conch should not be kept in a tank less than 30 gallon. The conch grows by increasing its swirling body while producing a protective shell, which protects its soft body from predators. The Fighting Conch exhibits a foot pad which it extends from its shell and allows it to drag its shell along. At the time of dragging itself, its mouth and eyes comes out of the shell. Though the Fighting Conch is a hardy species, it is also considered a very good sand sifter that helps in aerating the tank. As it burrows through the sand, it cleans the bottom and aerates too. The Fighting Conch grows up to 3 inches and therefore should be kept in a larger tank. It makes a great and valuable addition in to your reef tank. The Fighting Conch is mainly omnivores and consumes detritus, and can be supplied with the pieces of fresh fish, and dried seaweed, as well as high quality frozen foods, to supplement what it will feed on from the bottom of the tank. The Fighting Conch thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.10-8.40. It is sensitive to nitrite and copper and may prove lethal for this species. The Fighting Conch is considered reef safe and doesn?t bother any kind of coral present in the tank.
