Re: Should I get rid of these shells?

If you do get rid of them, you could sell them to someone else online. I'm sure many crabbies would gladly take in your unwanted shells!

How many crabs could I fit in my tank?

Hello! I'm wondering what number of crabs I could comfortably fit in my tank. I want to adopt some more! :crabbigsmile: My crabs are Aussies, so that's why I'm thinking that I may need more space.

Re: What shell's do Aussie's prefer?

Hi! Here is an HCA care sheet on Aussie crabbies (it has small section about shells). Also, I think the shells you picked out are smaller than 1.5" inch openings. On a couple of the descriptions, it says the shell openings are a little over 3 cm, or appx 1 1/8" openings. Make sure you check the siz...

What shell's do Aussie's prefer?

Hello! I'm a new user but have been using the information on the HCA for a while now. I have 3 Aussie hermits in a 65 gallon, who are needing some bigger shells. I have found Babylonian shells to be popular but was wondering what other's have had luck with? They are needing some new shells that have...
