At this size Saltwaterfish.com recommends 1 Queen Conch per every 20 gallons.Conchs belong to a Class known as Gastropods, which make up the largest class of Mollusks. Conchs grow by increasing their swirling body while producing a protective shell. This shell protects their soft body from predators. They use a pad, or foot, that extends from their shell which allows them to drag their shell along. As they drag their shell often times their mouth and eyes can be seen coming out from the opening of the shell.Photo by Saltwaterfish.com member, Bronco300: Luke Plank
