    I know that seashells in the tank is a big NONO because it traps crap and buildsup gasses .. .. .. how about filling the shell with some silicone???? Would that work - has anyone tried this?

    christiaan: Over time they''ll just be covered in coralline, so if you've got some really nice looking shells you're thinking of putting in it might not be worth it

    think effort is greater than benefit ... imagine your hermits clawing the silicone out to make a new home:lol:

    Very true, the coralline will make everything and I mean everything pink.

    Keep the shells in your bathroom :razz:
