watch a blue leg change shells for the first time!

I watched a blu leg move into a shell way to big foritself. It`s kinda funny because he can barely lift the thing. On top of that he has to stop every inch or so and rest... Just wanted to share this. Can anyone give advice where to get spare shells?

Most lfs have spare shells on the shelf for like 10 for a dollar. It is so cool to watch them move though. They check the new one out to see if it's good enough, then the move and recheck their old shells to make sure they didn't leave anything behind. It's really like they think there might be something left behind.

Good luck! Kat

Mine did this almost the minute I put the shells in the water. His house is way to big for him and I'm thinking dude move to the next one it's a little smaller. But no he likes thisone and has been in it a week. Another crab has taken over his old shell.
