So far I have been pretty good at judging. My biggest oops was ordering an 1 3/8 opening and a "large" assortment. They pretty much make for some nice decor in the tank. Usually after the first oops you instantly get better at ordering shells.

That's why it is always good to an assortment of different crab sizes. Not so they don't fight over shells, but when we screw up shell sizes for one crab others can use them! That way we don't feel as silly!

You're probably right. I'm sure my next order will be closer to the mark. Learn from your mistakes.

Turned around and immediately placed another order from Richard’s and now I think most of these will be too small. Third times the charm right? I think I’m gonna just wait for a while.Image

What sizes are they? How much did you pay? I need some smaller ones for my little guy. Would you want to sell them?

I’m going to keep them for now because three crabs are still down and I’m not sure of their sizes. They were on the smaller side when we got them.

Ok, it’s probably good to keep them, you can never have too many shells.
