Hand Picked Turbos and a Cute Crab Nic Nac

Post by hermiwormi » Tue Mar 19, 2019 5:06 pm

I am currently vacationing and I picked up some turbos and a cute little hermit crab figurine. The shop claims there are no harsh chemicals used in the process of polishing them.Image

Cute crabby! As for the shells, boil them and soak/dip them in salt water before adding them to your tank. Personally, I don't trust what people say, but there is still the shipping and dust, among whatever else the shells may have collected before you bought them. I take no chances when it comes to my crabbies, but that's me.
Anytime my husband and I are out, doesn't matter where, we are always looking for new stuff for our crabbies! I'm so glad there are others like us that love hermit crabs as much as we do!

I sure will boil and dip when I get back home to them Image I might put the crab on top of their tat because I'm afraid to add it inside. But boy were the shells expensive!
