Went for sea mix and bulbs yesterday and came home with an alge cowrie and a tiger cowrie along with a few snails and crabs. Anything I should be aware of with a cowrie in my reef tank?

Here is some info about the tiger cowrie from Live Aquaria

***********************************************
While small, it will eat some algae and scavenge for scraps, but as an adult, it will eat some anemones, sponges, and soft corals, and is best housed with starfish, sea urchins, and tubeworms in the reef aquarium. Do not house it with Condylactis sp.

I didn't find any info about the algae cowrie on their site though.
