(1) Empty Fancy Reef Hermit Crab Shell - Large. Approximately 1" inner shell diameter.
The Large Empty Hermit Crab Shells are offered in a quantity of (1) each, and are sold individually. Unlike the smaller empty hermit crab shells, the larger sizes are more costly. They are especially useful in a saltwater reef aquarium that contain large hermit crabs. They are also home to many beneficial micro-organisms that help to keep a healthy balance in an aquarium ecosystem. They may also be used for decoration, and may be used in freshwater aquariums, reptile terrariums and amphibian habitats.
As the saltwater reef hermit crabs grow, their shells do not grow to accommodate their larger size. When the crab out-grows its shell, it must then search out a new shell for its home. If an empty shell is not available, the crab will many times have to kill another crab or snail to obtain a shell. Often times if they cannot obtain a new shell fast enough, they are eaten by resident fish. By providing an empty shell, you will reduce the likelihood of the hermit crabs within the aquarium competing for a home, thus prolonging the life span of your entire clean up crew of crabs and snails.
Simply place the Large Saltwater Reef Hermit Crab Shell in your aquarium where the hermit crab has access to it.
