    Hey all

    Last night I was horrified to see my Left handed hermit and yellow spotted dwarf crab having a sparring match over whether lefty was going to have the yellow dwarf's shell or not.

    Where can I get bigger shells ??? The shells on the beach are normally destroyed ???

    Cheers
    Willie

    This is a good question, and I've been asking it for quite some time... I wonder if any of the sponsors would be able to hook us up?

    Look at gift shops - some has a lot of shells in little baskets as ornaments. Just make sure they don't have any soapy stuff in there and wash them well.
