I guess that would depend on how many you're getting at once. Personally, I only add 8-10 at a time, and that wouldn't be worth paying shipping. I like to make sure i have enough algae so that a big group of them all at once didn't starve. I also just don't like what's in the pre packaged bundles, so I just go to Petco or other LFS
around me. It's probably cheaper to buy the big bundle when they're on sale, though. But I really only use astrea, banded trochus, conch and Nassarius snails. And I prefer scarlet reef hermits, although a couple red-legged ones somehow got mixed in there too. In my daughters tank, there are a few bumble bee snails cuz she thought they were cute.
I have a ruby crab, wish I didn't have him now, but don't have the heart to catch him and take him back.
