Have been considering using conch shells to construct an artificial reef for a pilot study. Has anyone used conch shells for this purpose before. Any advice? Are they a good substrate for coral recuitment? Have they been successful for such purposes in the past? Are there any recommendation regarding citation of artificial reefs, other than depending on goals of reef use?

Many thanks,
