Sorry I missed that post but there is no need to yell. Either way I doubt they would unless there is nothing else to eat.

I'm not yelling, I'm just making the print more legible and I'm emphasizing a few points.

As a testament to Queen conchs eating cyanobacteria, I found my Queen conch climb up onto a rock, which has cyano, just a half hour ago and started to eat the red slime algae. It's eating it while I write this post.

I've never read or heard that any conch eat cyanobacteria. I'm not saying it isn't possible, just that I've never heard anybody offer that fact up before you pulled this old thread up. Can anybody offer up any science on the idea? Personally, I have very serious doubts.
