I have one Tonga Conch and one Nassarius snail.

The conch is great, it's been cleaning up my diatom bloom that
lasted 12 days.

The Nassarius is a bum in the sand, maybe he does something at night
or not.

My question is how can you tell if the conch is starving. The sand bed is
looking really clean now. Rock still have some diamtom but he doesn't
go on the rocks.

I have read other giving it nori, how to you get it to sink to the bottom
All filters power heads off?

Only a feather duster and BTA in the tank, no fish yet. I have been
using Marine Snow and Mysis ever so often so it's kind of still clean tank.

I do have a nano skimmer running too

Nori would work. Strap it to a rock with a rubber band and he will find it. Don't worry if other fish peck at it as long as you put a generous amount on.
