I’ve had one tiger conch in my tank for about 2 years. I just got another one. The current inhabitant immediately went over and sat on the new one. Has not moved off in a couple hours. Any thoughts on what this behavior means? A couple ideas I have.
  • It was lonely and is happy to have a friend
  • It does not like this new snail in its territory and is sitting on it as a sign of dominance
  • It’s a breeding attempt

Not entirely sure... If I had to guess possibly stating dominance for its territory? But obviously should not be a huge issue since LFS keep a bunch of these together in tanks where they sell them out of... Interesting though!

Any updates?
 

Would you consider your tank to be balanced or lopsided when it comes to coral?
