cowry's

I just bought a Cowry for my 75 gallon tank. So far he is a algae cleaning machine!! Just wondering if anybody else has one and how they feel about them! Any pros or cons?

I had a tiger cowry the size of an adult fist. I love them but have read they will eat soft corals.

they are incredibly tough to keep alive long ter unless they are in huge tanks, they need massive amounts of algea to be kept alive, some will eat coral, some will not probablu related to diet on tigers

They eat the foot of Anemones so if you have one in the tank I would remove it.
