  • Description
  • The Tiger Sand Snail, scientifically known as Conomurex luhuanus, is a captivating marine gastropod mollusk belonging to the Strombidae family, the true conchs. This unique snail is also commonly referred to as the Strawberry Conch or Fighting Conch, thanks to its distinctive appearance and behavior. Its shell exhibits a beautiful blend of white, orange, and brown patterns, resembling a tiger's stripes, while its interior is often a vibrant shade of orange or pink. These snails are primarily found in sandy habitats among corals in the Indo-Pacific region.

    In the wild, Tiger Sand Snails are known for their intriguing feeding and locomotion habits. They are primarily herbivorous, feeding on algae and detritus found in the sand. They use their muscular foot to propel themselves across the sandy bottom, often burying themselves partially to camouflage from predators. In a reef aquarium setting, these snails are valued for their algae-eating abilities, helping to maintain a clean and healthy environment. Their unique appearance and fascinating behavior make them a captivating addition to any saltwater aquarium, offering a glimpse into the diverse world of marine gastropods.
