PP’s won’t wear banded Pertholatus shells

PostAuthor: crabby33 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 5:15 pm

I just recently bought my crabs a couple of banded Pertholatus shells but my crabs have thrown them out of the shell shop and I have tried dipping them in msw to encourage the crabs to try them on but neither of them have taken the shells. One has a 7/8” opening and the other one has a 1” opening. I know people say these are favorites of hermit crabs, but maybe they’re not what mine prefer? I also have a couple of spotted turbos but those haven’t been looked at either. I have seen Violet wear Gold mouths and polished jade green turbos. So I’m thinking those are the shells she prefers to wear. Right now, she is wearing an apple murex previously worn by Buckbeak. Buckbeak is wearing a Mexican turbo with a 1 1/4” opening and he’s a medium crab.

They are some faves of PP's but they don't always change immediately when new shells are introduced. They'll swap when they want.
