Yep, conchs are great at cleaning sand- I highly recommend them. But if they're gonna get eaten by a goby, then skip it. They're about $10-15 each, which is an expensive snack for your goby. I'd research the goby and see if they eat snails before getting a conch.

Yep. Got mine at 2 different stores. Smaller one was 10, bigger was 15. They're not easy to find around here. I've seen them regularly at one LFS, and only couple times at another. So I paid what I had to. but I really like them- and my daughter does too.

So I'm movin over some coral today

Tested the water ph-8.2 ammonia-0 nitrite-0 nitrate-0

All my fish are hidden deep in the rocks. Can I put all My LR in the 90 From my 29? Or will it put strain on the bioload?

Are your keepin the 29 going it breaking that one down? If you're breaking it down, then as long as the rock is taken directly from the 29 to the 90, there shouldn't be any die off. But if you're leaving the 29 up, you might affect its BB load if you remove all the rock at once.
