i love little hermit crabs. an living in florida, i come across tons of lovely shells on the beach. if i were to boil these shells well, could i place them in the tank for the hermit crabs to inhabit if they please?

awesome! im sick of seeing my hermy crabs in ugly old turbo snail shells. i also wonder, for curiousity sakes, if theres a special paint i can use which is non reactive in salt water and non toxic that can be used to decorate shells?!
