  3. @DraconianSilenced actually, these painted shells are not self-painted. they are store bought. i saw a shop selling these colourful shells before. (:

  4. @SOXFOX painted shells are bad bad bad. when the paint chips. guess what? mr/mrs.hermie dies. they can eat the paint pollute the water and other hermies will die from eating it. SAY NO TO PAINTED SHELLS!

  5. @DraconianSilenced So? It’s not like the crab is negatively affected by it, and if it were so bothered by it, it would change into a new shell. I see hermit crabs who actually prefer painted shells over non painted shells, so I see no problem.
