Just note that any shells you buy for hermit crabs, probably comes from the ocean.

Not arguing but all the shells i have bought came from established tanks, not straight from the beach or shallow waters close to shore of the ocean where pollutants could fill them. most of my shells have probably came from snails that have died.
