How did you dispose of the crabs and mantis shrimp?
I placed them in a 29gal tank that I had that was empty then I traded all of them for some frags.. However 1 mantis ate the other lol...

I wasnt able to find any info on whelks either.. I just at the advice of another Advisor here removed anything that looked like a whelk as I lost a clam that was doing great for a while.. They look like Nassarisus snails..

Whelks aren't a very popular net topic yet.

I was looking at more of the blue leg hermits and such, not so much the emerald type crabs. I've watched them fin nip at too many pet stores. Are hermit crabs damaging?

I have 40+ hermits in my tank and haven't had an issue as of yet.. They clean the algae very well.. I know that at Etropicals if you order 60.00+ of their tank cleaners its free shipping.. Awesome deal.. I like the Blue Legged hermits, Red tipped, and the Zebra hermits..

As for whelks I tried to even search using Copernic Pro and wasnt able to find much.. You might want to check Clamsdirect.. Whelks are clam predators mainly and you might be able to find some there.. There is a link in my sig to the clamsdirect website..

Cool. I like hermit crabs and was hoping they were okay.
