I moved my tank a week ago today, and I removed the DSB as part of the move. I have a queen conch in my system and I'm concerned that he/she won't get enough to eat now without the sand. Anyone have long term success with a queen conch and a bare bottomed tank? Should I find him/her a new home? Thanks.

Also, I may be mistaken but, aren't the Queen conchs capable of climbing over rock and the fighting conch just stays on the sand bottom?

My queen conch spends about 90 percent of his time on the rock and sometimes even on the glass.
