I've ordered from cichlidbreeding.com - very nice shells. they royally screwed my order up and had to reship, but they got it right in the end and it didn't cost me anything extra. the neothauma shells are kinda ugly. :p I went with $.30 shells instead.

Because we have a 'Reviews' section that includes opinions on retailers, we ask that you take advantage of this resource when possible. We feel that it is better for all who use the site to have a structured place to conduct reviews. Reviews on a discussion board quickly become buried and it is inevitable that your input will not be seen next time, or the time after that. This is not the case with the reviews section. In addition, it is easy to compare retailers and products there. Thank you for your consideration.

Not to hijack, but how big does a shell have to be for most Shell Dwellers? I have some escargot shells laying around that are about 1 to 1.25 inches across and am afraid to use them for my multies because I dont want them to get stuck in them.

Are you measuring the entire shell or just the opening of the shell??? The opening to the shells I linked to above are are between 1-1.25 inches and the entire shell is right around 2"s at the longest point.

That is the entire shell, I would guess the opening is more to the tune of 3/4".

They should be fine, I recently had 5 brevis all get in the same escargot shell, and they all came out fine. (I had removed the rest of the shells from the tank, because I was selling the fish, and didn't want to give away all my shells)
