Tiger Sand Conch

Strombus spp


Despite their name, they are peaceful toward other tank mates. They are excellent sand sifters, and are very beneficial in the reef aquarium. As they burrow and dig through the aquarium substrate, they clean and aerate the bottom. It will always stay on the bottom of your tank, won't bother any invertebrates or corals whatsoever.

SCIENTIFIC NAME: Strombus spp

Conchs feed on algae and detritus in the aquarium. They need a large amount of plant matter in their diet and may starve if out-competed for food or if there is not enough algae in the aquarium to support them.

Tiger Sand Conch - Stombas spp
This is by far the most enjoyable thing in my tank. He not only cleans my sand but also about an inch of the bottom of the glass. He also climbs on short rocks and cleans them by stretching out his little neck at least 1/2 inch. This is not just another snail. Not only does he clean but he entertains. Every tank should have one of these lovable creatures!
