Where do you get your shells for your hermit crabs or snails?

  • Where do you purchase your shells for your crabs and snails at, and how do you disinfect them properly if you purchased them at a craft store for example? Do you look for any specific designs or types of shells (non-painted, for example)? Have you tried using any shells that aren't actually shells but were created from a molding of some kind?

  • I know that there are a bunch of local shops that sell them or you could even look on Amazon? I just don’t know if the painted ones are aquarium safe paint or if it’s more for decoration vs. actually being used
