    My trip to the local sea shell shop out on Padre Island was a huge success as far as finding a variety of shell types and sizes! Everythig was dirt cheap too. Most of my shells cost .49-.89 cents. Some of the nicer shells were $1.99 but those were some of the more exotic shells. They also had natural sea sponges 2/$1.00. They had all sizes of coral and even the shells that are good to use for dishes. They had hermie huts really cheap too.
    I was less than impressed with their hermie habitat. It was open-air and had no temp./humdiity gauges. All the hermies were in painted shells:eek:. They even had those horrible tiny plastic boxes for sale. The substrate was a layer of aquarium gravel. There were some huts for hiding and the tank was crabitat was clean w/ food and water. None of the crabs were out and about exploring. There were a few natural shells thrown in the crabitat...kind of looked like an after thought.
    I bought a load of sea shells for my crabbies! Some of you who are looking for huge shells, I might be able to help you out for a small fee. They also had some really small shells..sea snail, turbos, welks...everything imaginable.

    Help!!! My two small crabs are going crazy changing shells. I bought all of those new shells and they can't get enough of trying them on. One little guy has changed shells five times this afternoon :eek:. I got his first shell change of the afternoon on video! I wish my mediums would come up and join the party. My bigger one really needs to change to a bigger shell...for some reason he prefers to keep himself crammed into a shell that he can't even pull his legs into very much. Maybe he will like the new selection.
