Hi!
I'm starting up an acquarium in my house, with the main purpose of...guess! Rolling Eyes Wink hosting alive cowries! Do you have any precise information on how to feed them? I'd like to put tigris, arabica, grayana, moneta, annulus, carneola, talpa, and any other species that I can find in aquarium shops.
Any suggestion will be welcome!
Ciao
Marco

Hi Marco,

Most coweries, including the ones you listed, eat algae. I'd stay away from the larger species such as C. tigris. In any case, molluscs generally can't live long in an aquarium.

Good luck,
Dave

hello, Marco

Very interesting, however you have to be sure that the cowrie species you want to keep in your aquarium, are reef-safe(they don't damage your corals in your aquarium) that is mainly the reason why there are not much held in captivity in aquariums, because there are species that eat soft corals, like the Ovulids...

try moneta, or annulus, but hard to get alive..

regards,
Jeroen
