Fighting conch

I have one fighting conch already is it possible to add more? I have a 72 gallon with a deep sandbed. I would like to add two or three more to help with sifting the sand.

From what I've read, 1 conch per 2 sq ft of sandbed is recommended. So, depending on how much sand you have exposed, I'd say you would be ok to get 1, maybe 2 more. BTW, love my conch, keeps sand looking great.

I'm looking into buying a fighting conch too but i'm not sure if it needs to have a mature home. My tank is only 3 months old

I really like the conch I have as well. He just needs some help. I need something larger so they dont get crunched on.
