Under your bed.
So I have a bare bottom tank so one day I can have encrusting corals all over the bottom. But for now, it's just bare bottom. I am a big fan of the fighting conch, however, I don't know if it would do well without sand. Can someone confirm this?

It's possible that it may do okay, but the conch does burrow in sand/cc/rock when it isn't eating, and also when it is working on growing.
I have never had a conch in a BB tank personally though.
