Yeah, I asked at one of my LFS if they have any cuz there weren't any out, and the guy reached behind the counter and brought out this big box of snail shells. It was like a snails worst nightmare!!! lol. Anyways, they were pretty cheap.

I wouldn't worry. It definitely just looks like it molted. I freaked out when I first saw this, but over time I saw it more and more, and always had the same number of crabs.

This was a molt from my Horseshoe crab. It looks like a whole one, but its just another exoskeleton.

hm it turns out the shell nearby was a snail actually, i flipped it over after 3 days of me thninking it was dead and it still moved partially :O

i hope he lives but i had no idea it was a snail from what i could view all i saw was black at the entrance

also i noticed i have some coral growing on my rocks, its very white and feint, couldnt tell if it was dying in the first place or growing, but after staring at it for like 5 minutes it instantly retreated and disappeared, it is circular and looks like a common one, but im surprised its growing.

i only have a hood and light from petsmart, so i only have like a t8 bulb.
