Nice that's awesome I've seen mine swap so many times but it never gets old watching them check out the shell and approve it and hop in. A lot of the time mine change for a brief time maybe an hour up to a day and go back to the previous. Awesome.video those are pretty shells too.

I have those exact shells that GabyRaven has in the tank! Love it! I got my brown turbos from Point Pleasent.

Lol, thank you isadoraisacat! You're so right, it never gets old watching them shop! I got my shells from a shop in Dania, South Florida :) I live down here so it's like a 10 minute drive to find A++ shells Image

Nice i wish i lived in Florida must be so much easier to keep the crabs in good temps and humidity and obviously easy access to hermit and shell stores.

We can trade lol, it's great for the crabs but it's awful down here for me The humidity is perfect for the crabs as well, but for humans, it just sits on you and collects and suddenly you're soaked Additionally, any coastal state has shell shops laying around, some tourist stores are great for shells believe it or not, polished turbos galore

Thanks everyone for all the compliments on the shells and Janet's color :) Here's a cute video of her as a token Image
