    So I was bored today and thinking of ways to make cuc buying fun. How about this:

    Designer Hermit Shells

    Not those goofy painted shells, but the nicest shells from around the world from all the non-reef safe snails we can't keep. Nice ones like the lace murex, the lightning whelk etc...

    So what do you think?

    That sounds very cool. How would you get the shells?

    - I hear you. I am not a huge fan of coralline, still would be a cool shape.

    Here is some shell art to give you an idea:

    Would a shell like that be worth $.15?

    My question is would my hermit like it? I myself would not have a problem with .15 cents as I have bought a shell or two for that already.

    i mean I sell for that already, so might as well get good looking ones right? I don't know...I think there is the added bonus that I get to spend less time sorting shells.

    I think that's a neat idea. I like it.

    I've noticed my hermits do not like Nerite or Astrea shells.
