The Fighting Conch is an amazing addition to any aquarium and provides a unique and interesting visual dynamic. Its diet is quite easy to maintain, as it is an omnivore and will consume a variety of foods. It is important to provide regular supplements of fresh fish, dried seaweed, and high quality frozen foods to ensure that it receives the nutrition it needs.
