Though a male Little Bear Conch can be territorial towards other males of its own kind, the Little Bear Conch is peaceful towards other tankmates. The Little Bear Conch is a suitable addition to any home reef aquarium, where it will use its excellent sand sifting abilities to clean and aerate the substrate.

Praised for their hardiness, the Little Bear Conch requires open, deep sand beds in which it can forage for food. Though multiple Little Bear Conches should be housed in larger systems, single specimens are suited for any size reef aquarium. Keep in mind that the Little Bear Conch has a voracious appetite; as such, supplemental feeding is required in smaller systems and recommended in even the largest aquarium setups.

Classified as an omnivore, the Little Bear Conch will consume detritus from your aquarium substrate. Supply pieces of fresh fish and dried seaweed, as well as high quality frozen foods to supplement the diet of the  Little Bear Conch. Like other invertebrates, the Little Bear Conch is sensitive to high levels of nitrate and will not tolerate copper-based medications.
