I highly recommend cholla from BioactiveFX1 on Etsy. The shop is formerly known as The Cholla Queen.

I know they are transitioning between names, and other stuff so they may not be at all their normal places until everything gets situated.

About how long do you think my hermit crab is going to keep molting. It is only about the size of a quarter and has already been molting for a little bit more than five weeks. I’m really impatient I just want to do this tank upgrade! I’m so excited!

There is no real what to tell honestly. It can be tomorrow or a few months. Every crab goes at their own pace.

Sorry for so many questions but I am looking for Ideas to use for shell shops I have a lot of extra shells in their enclosure and I don’t know what to do with them! I have a bit of room on the tank topper on one of the sides, I thought of making a shelf there with the shells but I then realized that they would not be able to carry the shells down from the rope bridge. Any ideas for Shell shop? I have plenty of room on the bottom part of the tank! What should I use to put the shells in or should I not have anything at all to put the shells in?

You could leave them in the substrate, or just put them in a basket that they could get in and out of. I’m not too educated with shells so I’m not exactly sure if you could put some on the second floor or not

You don't really want them to carry them off. They usually just switch and leave the old one behind. At least half of what I've put in my tank are underground now.
