i have recently purchased more live rock in my quest to slowly turn my 55 gallon saltwater tank to a reef tank. i created a not-so-great amount of holes, nooks and crannies to keep them busy for a whiles yet they keep cramming themselves in my conch. the opening is about six inches long and about 1/2 wide. although its concerning, i find it funny that a blue tang, a lawnmower blenny, a percula clown, and 4 damsels(yellowtail+4 stripe+2 domino) can altogether cram themselves in this shell without any harassment problems . i was thinking of taking the conch out but ill se if i could get a pic in. and here i thought they would be fighting over the live rock

While I don't pretent to know much about salt water but I can not see any reason why it would be a bad thing if there is no fighting in the conch. If I had a tank with loaches, Bichir, Eels and other commonly aggrassive fish and they all shared one shell without killing each other I doubt I would change anything especially if they have a lot of room to find another place to hide if they want to.

Animals are just weird sometimes and will do the oddesnt things. Dogs raising squirrels, cats raising rats, deer raising rabbits. You never know what might work.

Just keep an eye on them and make sure that there isn't an opportunist taking advantage of the situation and making snacks of the others.
