    wow there miss shell expert!!
    I don't know what the names are, but my E's hate turbos and all my E's are in D-shaped opening shells, not O opening shells like turbos.
    Those E's are so picky!
    By the way, that straw in your profile pic looks awesome!  :rockon:

    Hehe, not a shell expert, just had to order shells a few times by their scientific names  :sunny:

    I have to agree, they are stubborn and picky little devils. I found it odd that some E's like the turbo's.

    Thanks for the lovely compliment  :kissflowers:

    It seems that the E's prefer the D shaped opening, but I have one in a Turbo (O shaped) that he just won't change from.  It's funny to watch him because he chose one that was too big for him and the shell carries Him around!  He gets around in it though.  Silly crab...
