    Hermit crab shells

    Just to let people know. I have been to many LFS and no one seems to have hermit crabs shells, so either they are killing snails and using them or old snail shells it has been hard to find exspecially ones for larger hermits light the left handed, Well I just went to lewis craft in rideau center and picked up a 20 shells ( all range in sizes) for 1.69 and they had a large collection for 3.99. Just thought I would let everyone know

    Re: Hermit crab shells

    Just a funny story about hermit shells.  I had a few guys over once for cards.  Someone had taken a beer bottle cap and folded it over in half.  Well within a few days, after a visit from my 3 year old neice, it ended up in the tank.  I never saw the cap in there until one day I had a Budweisser hermit crab on my LR.  The crab had made a home of the bent over cap.  

    Lucky for me, the hermit stayed in this cap for only that day, adn I later found it on the sand infront of my rock wall.

    This buds for you

    Re: Hermit crab shells

    i've been pondering the idea of getting rid of hermits and going just with various types of snails. that way you don't have the bastards killing your expensive snails.

    OR just getting the super small hermits.. and keeping in check. a pain that might be though.
