The Tiger Cowrie is a nocturnal species that prefers to stay hidden during the day among rock or sponges. With its beautiful design, it makes a beautiful captivating addition to the tank. The Tiger Cowrie needs a well decorated aquarium with plenty of hiding spots, e.g. caves and crevices to give an opportunity to carry out its natural browsing behavior in captivity and also to provide them shelter during the day time. The Tiger Cowrie snail is protected by an egg-shaped shell. Its opening is lined with sharp nail-like structures that keep intruders from entering. The Tiger Cowrie shows a wide range of different pattern and color variations on the shell. The color of the shell can be affected by the presence of few compounds in the water such as excess of iron can lead to a rusty appearance. The Tiger Cowrie is non-aggressive and non-venomous, which makes it a peaceful fish in the tank. Avoid housing it with aggressive and rough surfaced creatures since it may injure the soft mantle. As it grows it may topple the coral or damage it as it moves around the aquarium, that is why it is considered reef safe but with caution when it grows up. The Tiger Cowrie thrives well in a temperature range of 72-78 degrees fajhrenheit and pH of 8.1-8.4, and adding supplements of calcium proves to be beneficial in the growth of its shell and strength. The Tiger Cowrie is a carnivore species that feeds during the night, and its diet should include meaty bits of fish and seafood. As juveniles, the Tiger Cowrie is mostly found feeding on algae and detritus.
