For whatever reason these snails are called the Fighting Conch even though they don’t seem to fight.

Conch foraging on the sand bed.

They eat all sorts of stuff off the sand bed, basically they are omnivores, and keep your tank clean. They look interesting while doing that.

The conch has that appendage that looks like an elephant’s trunk and uses it to eat with.
Its eyes are also on stalks.
