Don't kill the Cone Snail! They are beautiful creatures. Take him to LFS. They will take him I'm sure. Someone would give him a good home in their sump.

I hope this helps with your little "house guest".
Don't be sorry, I'm always glad to find out more information. Good thing I found him as I wouldn't want him slowly clearing out my tank of all the worms.

If I had of put him in the sump he would have slowly starved to death.

Over time you wouldn't be left with any more tubeworms, or even the beneficial worms in you sand.

Yep, breed em if you can find another if it isnt asexual as it is. there is a huge market for so called pest inverts in the fish world. Since it eats only worms, keep em or ship him to someone who wants him. No need to kill them.
