Size of hermit crabs?

I've got 10 tiny blue-leg hermits in my tank, and LiveAquaria.com says they will reach a maximum size of 1". How is that measured? Is that really the size of the animal inside the shell, or the maximum size of the shell it chooses to live in?

The size of the animal it's self. But make sure that You have extra homes fo them to move to and from. Or it will be a heck of a fight as they out grow there little homes and fight for new ones.

Will do. I just got a bag of shells from the local crafts store. I just boil them for an hour before putting them in the tank, is that right?

Should I pile the shells in the corner, or just scatter them on the bottom of the tank?

Y ea you got it and just put them where ever mine just find them, steal it and there gone. It is quite neat to see them do if you can catch them.
