Hermit shells?

Is there a good place to order hermit crab shells online? I need a good variety of them for my wife's crabs to move into.

Thanks for any help!!!

I believe liveaquaria.com has some, but I'd try the LFS too. They often have plenty of'm laying around. That way you can hand pick the sizes a little larger than the one's you've got. On line, I'm guessing you'll get some huge ones that can't be used for some time IMO.

Mu LFS doesn't even charge me for'm.

Yeah, I'm thinking you might get to use 10% of the 240 - if that much IMO.
