The Spider Conch, Lambis lambis, features a characteristic shell with long protruding horns resembling a spider's legs. The Spider Conch's shell shape is unparalleled in the home aquarium making for a unique addition to any tank. It can be a beneficial tank member as it will eat algae and detritus helping clean the tank. They should be kept in tanks with plenty of live rock and a sandy substrate while avoiding predatory fishes. The Spider Conch is a wonderfully addition to your tank if you are looking to add an invertebrate that is unique, helpful, and beautiful.
This guy really takes care of the algae, but he's a bull in a china closet with that shell. I say that mostly in jest, but he does occasionally re-arrange some of the free corals on the substrate. The one I received has beautiful multi-colored shell.
