Wild caught snails/crabs

Can I put snails and hermit crabs taken from the ocean in my tank? What about a sea urchin?

You could but you take a chance on if they are very aggressive and will wipe out your tank. Not all livestock is peaceful and just gets along.

I believe thar in the state of CA it is illegal to take any animal from the ocean without proper permits. Snails and inverts are cheap, cheaper than the game wardens ticket if your caught.
