  1. Hi guys, I'm looking for some info on where to buy some more shells for my neo similis pair. I've had a look in some pet stores but the variety is limited or none at all. If anyone knows of some places selling them or someone that has a few spare for sale PM or reply to post. Thanks Rob
  2. thought i would share my tried and true method of safely extracting alto comps and calvus from their shells to steal their fry and to clean their shells from all the gunk left over from last spawn which can and does spoil some or all of the next clutch if the female doesn't clean up properly or simply cant! this is why sometimes you will notice less fry with each spawn instead of more, the egg rott from the last batch is spoiling them ; >>> So, here it is. If its just a male or non-paired or non-spawning girls that have hogged a shell I extract them by placing the shell right up to the front glass with the opening facing you, give an inch or so room from the opening to the glass, when they come out a few mins later they say WTF im not living here up against this front glass, and that BigRock bloke is ugly enough from a damn distance as is, im out of here lol ,...so they simply abandon it! males abandon instantly and females who aren't fanning ofcourse will abandon it pronto aswell !! a fanning female usually wont. So with them,soon as I notice fry I go get an exact replica shell that's been cleaned and dried then i'll gently move her shell over just a few inches and place the new shell in the exact same position and place where hers was and then sit back and watch, she will come out a couple mins later and you'll see her expression almost say wtf lol what am i doing here? this isnt my shell thats my shell. And bang she'll go in the new one and that's when you dive in and grab her shell full of fry works a treat! and she is none the wiser all except her fry are gone, the pair bond also stays the same, theres NO territory dispute or sussing of new shells or placement etc, coz they have no real clue what happened when you do it this way and they'll begin another spawn soon as they can. This method is also more deviously fun than other methods when doing it, so enjoy!! ;
  3. just want to get some shells for my calvus to breed in looking for a decent size to. wanting to start up a calvus tank
  4. I got some shells a few days ago from a guy named Greg Hayes. Amazing shells, great prices. They have a minimum order of $30 + $12 postage but they are great quality, promptly couriered & have an amazing selection even barnacles. Better than Bunnings as you can not only choose the type & colour of shells but from a range of sizes too! Check out the website, Coral Coast Shells Seashells , Seashell Crafts and Seashell Products. He's based in Macksville NSW. ***FORUM SPONSORS*** he wholesales to companies in Sydney, sure he might deal with you guys if you're interested. BTW yes I checked to see if it was ok to put up a thread for him. Here's some pics of the small selection I chose
  5. Hey guys, So I got some shells from bunnings and they are all about the 2-5cm total size. How big does the entry need to be for the shellies as I think they may all be too small... Cheers Trav
