Shellie's

I'm starting a Shellie tank, I have one female on the way I bought on here. It's a multi, does anyone know where I could buy more offline for cheap? Or maybe someone around these forums? I also would like any advice you guys could give that isn't on google. I've basically memorized that information.


May the force be with you.

Be careful on adding shellies separately. Once a multi/s become established, they don't welcome newcomers too well. I'm sure others will chime in with suppliers, I don't order online typically.

Sand and at least 3 shells per fish. And yea adding these guys individually is a bad Idea. As to where to get them I have no answer to. My lfs gets them every now and then and sell for like $6 a piece Then there is Aquarium Adventure that always has them and sells them to non members for like $25 each.

If you are located in Indiana, I would recommend going to The Reef, as they always have multis in stock, and they have a couple other shell-dweller species there. That's where I get mine.
