Imported Juvenile specimens of conchs that have a maximum adult size of 3 inches, making them smaller than our Florida Fighting Conch when adult.
 
 
 
 

  This item is for one individual conch, selected from an assortment of we receive that are all reef safe cleaners. (Strombus spp.) The conchs in this product description reach an average adult size of 2- 3 inches or so, and can eat a considerable amount of algae. Because of their size we do not recommend them unless you have a tank 30 gallons or larger. However, you should know they live entirely in the sand, and are scared to venture onto rock. If your substrate is almost entirely covered with rock you should get less than what we have recommended.

    They are an excellent cleaner, and substrate stirrer. You can also feed them fish flake and or spirulina. They are a hardy species, but do best within tanks that are at least a month removed from the end of the cycle. Conchs feed through a "trunk" like mouth,  and have eyes that  are on long stalks that can move independently making them an interesting creature to watch.

    This assortment will include a random reef safe conch, from 1 of the following species:

Strombus gibberulus
Strombus luhuanus
Strombus sinatus
Strombus urceus
 
These species all have a similar diet of hair algae, film algae, diatoms and as well as some inadvertent scavenging.  Most will be Bear conchs, (Strombus urceus), and ship around 1.5 inches or so.
