What is the use of moonlights again? To run them 24/7 and make the fish think that is night time?
It's mainly just for you to see your tank at night

Moonlights should be run at night and they help mimic the natural nighttime environment for the fish. Encourages spawning too.

Do you have extra shells in there for the crabs? One of my snails got murdered for his shell. That could be what happened then everyone else just came in to finish him off.

No we dont, but why would a hermit want a snail shell? Seems too big!

Where can we buy some?

That's what I thought too. I'm not sure where you can buy some, I had some in my shell dweller tank that I put in there. I've seen some at Walmart, in the home decor area like where the candles and flower arrangement stuff is. Or you can pay 1-4 bucks for a hermit shell at pet stores.
