    Holy Canoli! Jelly had me thinking about shells and its been forever since I had them all out and went over what I had. Amazing what I have kept over the years and I know I have given and sold oodles more than this.

    I got some BIG ones that I can only hope get used one day (I spent a fortune on them anyway :chuckle:) and some that are in abundance :eeeek:

    big uns

    these are infamously known in the crab world as ant shells - they are incredibly small less than 1/4 inc opening

    if I remember I try and keep the crabs original shell- if they die then they go in the other stash but here are some that I still have *sniff* when they were babies

    If anyone wants some of these you can have them. Personally I think they are too heavy for a crab [img width=400 height=344]http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a296/vicfish/The%20Crab%20Room/DSC04293.jpg[/img]

    If someone is stuck for teenie shells I can help I dont need all of these :)

    If you want to...ahem...get rid of a few of those big ones, my sister (who's currently taking care of my crabs while I'm living abroad) could use a few of them! My bigger crabs are almost too big for the shells I have, and I feel bad that she's going to have to buy some of the bigger more-expensive shells...

    Okay! I don't have any special preferences. I have two medium crabs: one PP, (Purple Pincher) and one E (Ecuadorian). I just need a couple of good-sized comfortable shells, and I will pay you for them, for the price you think they are worth.

    I think your missing what I said- I dont have large/medium shells for anyone. I have some smalls and teenies. What size opening do you need because your medium and mine may not be the same

    its a shame you cant get on my site there is a whole section on how to measure shells.............
    you can measure his BP and see if there is room when he is closed up in the shell. That would be a start

    Okay! Thanks, and yes. It is a shame. I really wish I could HERMEZ, but I can't. I'm sorry.
