Conch

Monday i added 2 fighting conches to my tank. They buried into the sand and so far are just sitting there. Is this normal or will they start moving around when they settle

You will probably find that you won't see them much at all. I also have had two for over a year, I very rarely see them through the day, they can bury themselves in the sand for weeks but after lights out they often come out. It used to worry me incase they died in the sand bed but now I can usually see where they are... They like to still see what's going on!

Is it common for them to stay in the same place for 4 days buried with an eye poking out?

After I added my conch he came out the first day or two and then didn't come out for almost a month. I thought it had died. After that it now comes out daily.

Is your tank been up and running for a while? If so they could stay under the sand for ages eating away
