Tiger conchs only grow to about 3-4", so they are smaller than queen conchs. I have a tiger conch, and it does a great job at keeping the sand bed stirred and clean due to it's behavior of burying itself and feeding habits. I've yet to see it leave the sand. It's a model citizen, I really like them. HTH

Thanks chizzle, I'd love to see a picture(s).

Mike, thanks. Mine go occasionally on the rocks and I found one of mine stuck in a colony of GSP, haha. But I agree, model citizens, they rock.
