If the Hydrometer is Like Mine (Oceanic) All ya gotta Do is Dunk the entire Unit into the Water to fill it up, there is an Overflow type thing, this is okay, it is how it works. Once the water has leveled off, Look at the Pointer needle thing. It should be pointing to some numbers in a Guage. After ...

I definately would not Advocate "Smuggling"!!!!! It just is not worth the time in Jail and Fines!
When I came home from Iraq, we had Customs Agents Search ALL or Baggage...And I do Mean Everything was thoroughly Searched.
It is best to be upfront and Honest! Honesty has always been the Best Policy.

I use the shells of the departed. In the wild, the shells are are used by
Hermies that are looking for a New Home.
I am sorry you lost them. I expected it though :(
Keep the shells and re-use them.
Don't give up on trying to have a Marine tank.

With Luck, They May Survive the Night! They are extremely Stressed at the Moment. As soon as You Can, get those Items I mentioned. And do an Immediate Water Change after You have the Stuff. I learned how to keep Marines the exact same way as you! I have Lost at least 30 Marine Hermies early on from ...

IO or Oceanic contains Vital elements that would be found in the Ocean. Not to break your Heart, But I really do not think these guys are...

You will need some Kind of Rock...Does Not need to be "Live" rock, I use Tuffa Rock. And Crushed Cor...
