Do any of your LFS sell shells? I have one lfs that sells various sizes of shells, the others just sell empty snail shells. You need a good sized empty conch shell. Have you ever collected shells at the beach? And if so, Still have any? A lot of the shells I put in for the hermits are from the beach on vacation.

How many inches is the shell he's in? I could try to find you one a little bigger and mail it to you, if your petsmart doesn't have them.

Reefs2go.com offers assortments of shells for an ok price. Also petco and petsmart should have some shells by their terrariums where they keep the terrestrial hermits but I'm not sure how well those shells will sink.

Okay. Just PM me if you don't find anything. I have 5 or 6 LFS that have SW around here, and I can check our bin of seashells too.

That's what I'm working towards my own little piece of ocean! I only have mushrooms and a Xenia that my rabbit fish had decided to dine on
