of course....
I first washed/flushed them with the RO-DI water them put them in the quarantine tank with fresh new salt water made with RO-DI water
I had them in quarantine for about 5 days and introduced them last nite....They are moving around and seem to be good.
I know one of them is a sand shifting conch and there is one that looks alot like a queen conch, the other im not sure....its bigger then i thought and i may put him back in the gulf.
