TOP TIPS - How to keep Deer Cowries

If you want a reef safe Cowrie then Money cowries will be a better choice. This species is not well studied. Some evidence suggests it is a reef safe grazer. Some say it may eat corals, but, often this turns out to only happen if the animal is given so little food it has to choose between eating corals or starvation. Some sources say it may be predatory, but, often this turns out to be scavenging of animals that died from other causes. We recommend only keeping this species with large fish, or, keeping them in refugiums, or sumps, where they do a very useful job.


This animal is generally safe with larger fish, but, may eat or damage small fish, and/or eat or damage some or all corals. They are generally great in big fish only systems, but, can often also be kept in refugiums and/or sumps, where they do a very useful job. These animals can be kept in refugiums or sumps. They make excellent clean up crew for areas of your system where food etc may accumulate where your other clean up crew cannot get to it. This helps to keep a system clean, meaning better water parameters for the display too. It also gives you the chance to keep something cool that you can’t keep in your main tank.


Not suitable for reef tanks. May also not be safe with all fish.
