Ein sehr wichtiger Beitrag. Es werden Flügelschnecken im Handel angeboten, wo nicht von Abfang an klar ist, ob sie zu Strombidae oder Conidae gehören. Junge Schnecken von Canarius und Conomurex mit Bewuchs auf dem Haus sind schwer von Conus zu unterscheiden. Es wird sich wohl nicht vermeiden lassen, die Schnecken zu Anfang in Quarantäne zu halten und zu testen, ob es "Jäger oder Sammler" sind.

Ich fasse meine jedenfalls nur mit Zange an, auch wenn sie aktuell nur den Sand durchkauen und Algen fressen. Sie sind auch tagsüber aktiv.
