    Strawberry Conch

    I've tried to do some research on strawberry conchs and have come up with unreliable info. I'd like to hear of some opinions or experiences. The lack of a latin name assigned to all specimens I have seen for sale means I have not been able to get any behaviorial descriptions. I need to know if a specimen would be ok to house in a 55Gal. with hermits, soft corals etc... I think it would be pretty cool to see a conch crawling around my tank but I need to be dead certain it won't do more harm then good.
    55 Gal. with 75lbs of liverock, 2x96w PC lighting and an appetite for much more!

    I have three in my tank and they are constantly cleaning the sand bed, and the base of the LR.

    Love my conch. Stirs up my sandbed and eats algae. Interesting little critters.
