Sorry it took so long to get back. I got rid of my conch. It was not a fighting conch. Still don't know if it was a queen or what. It kept knocking frags and small rock over. It was pretty neat though.

There are some species of whelks that are labeled as conchs. Whelks are carnivores that mainly eats bivalves and other snails. I was once sold a crown conch. After doing some research on it, I found out that it's primarily a predator. Had to get rid of it right away since I have tridacna clams in my tank. I favor them more than a $2.50 predatory snail in my tank. That's just me

Personally it looked like a crown conch IMO. (which is a species of whelk) that's just my observation. Let's see if anyone else can chime in
