Do I need extra shells for hermit crabs?

Do I need extra shells for my hermit crabs in case they out grow their current shells?

Yes, or they will kill each other/snails for their new homes.

I have some of those from LiveAquaria.com. They are OK, but small. Right now I am trying to find some bigger ones. 2 of my blue legged crabs are getting quite large.

How big are you looking for? I just did a quick eBay search and they have a lot of shells up for sale, but I don't know if they are the size you want

Well, I was going to hold off a couple of weeks. I am going to Cozumel at the end of the month and will be doing a lot of diving. Figured I may find some there.
If not, thats a good Idea looking on ebay.
I need them 2-3"in length.

I just got back from Playa del carmen. I case you don't find any I hit a gift shop and I found a huge bag for shell for 2 bucks. There was all different sizes my hermit already moved in.
