hermit crabs
 
I have 6 dwarf blue legged hermits, there only about 1/2 inch long, will they outgrow there shells? If they do how do i get them new ones? They wont kill my snails will they?

just get some empty one from the beach or LFS ...or if you still can't find any try ebay. Then just toss them in the Tank and the crabs will change over if/when they liked.
I have a about 10-12 empty, of different sizes, in my tank for the little guys to change.

if you dont get bigger shells they will at your snails looking for some.
