There are LOTS of various sizes of shells around the tank, so it couldn't have been a need for the shell. And I thought they stayed small, but I apparently have the Arnold Schwarzenegger of zebra hermits cuz he's way bigger than the others. Haha. Was I misinformed about them staying small-ish?
Lol. I have no idea about the zebra hermits. But that's really funny.

if a hermit wants a shell he will take it weather it's occupied or not

Well, I know that, but I had read that zebra hermits were more peaceful and stayed smaller than other hermits. No?

even if they are more peaceful they still go on instinct when hunting a new home

hermits are funny if they find a shell they try it on if it don't fit right they try another almost like us trying on new shoes till they find the most comfortable one
I can have a 100 empty shells that don't mean it's going to use them all the time it's a hit or miss they might find one that seems better

A few days ago I added a decorative pot to the FOWLR, just to add some color to the tank. Today it looks like the clown has decided to host it.

Bought a flame scallop today. I'm a little apprehensive about this guy, but I'm giving it a go.

Why are you apprehensive? Are you worried about him starving?

the flame scallops are fragile keep a good eye on your parameters not letting them swing any
med flow moderate light brine shrimp I seen them fed with a syringe just don't force feed stay back about 3 inch
good luck oh keep it away from hermits or they'll eat him
