    Great looking pictures. I have 2 Fighting Conchs on order with my local Reef Club right now. Great sand sifters.

    Nice pics!

    I've got a conch as well. It's interesting how they sometimes bury into the sand with only their stalk-eyes poking out. Their method of locomotion is interesting as well, using their clawed 'foot' as opposed to snail like movement.
