  • Description
  • The Sand Conch is a unique and interesting snail. Sand Conchs have a long multicolored shell that grows with the snail.

    Sand Conchs reach a maximum adult size of around 4 inches and need to be kept in tanks that are at least 29 gallons in size. Sand Conchs are peaceful inverts and shouldn't bother other fish, coral or inverts in your tanks. This makes the Sand Conch a great snail for reef tanks. Multiple Sand Conchs can be kept in larger systems, but smaller tanks should be limited to one Sand Conch.

    Sand Conchs will spend most of their time looking for detritus, leftover food and algae to eat in your rockwork and in your substrate. This makes the Sand Conch a great addition to your clean up crew. Sand Conchs cannot be kept in tanks that have had copper in them or that have bad water quality either.

    Sand Conchs are omnivores and require a diet that is rich in both meaty and green foods. Sand Conchs will get most of their nutrition from your tank, but you can supplement their diets with nori or marine algae sheets, high quality frozen foods or high quality flake and pellet foods.
