Shells

Post by Cheryl B » Sun Mar 01, 2020 2:34 pm

I have 4 Coenobita Clypeatus crabs, (Caribbean Tree crabs) have had them for 4 years.
I can’t find growth shells that they like. I need two inches or slightly larger plain turbo shells, they are currently in turbo shells
I have plenty of shells here that I could trade if someone is interested
Thanks!
Cheryl

Be sure you are measuring your shells correctly. The best approach is to go by the shell opening size not the overall shell size.

Here is our guide to selecting the proper types of shells different species prefer.
