    No hits so far, but I'm not in any rush to sell, just keeping tabs on my stocking levels.

    AWESOME! I'm so happy to find them at last. The guy at my LFS said you can't even get them in the country! I want at least 10. Where did you get the shells from?

    I got mine from Jack Stone (Stone Aquatics) a few years ago, but I've also heard that they've become hard to find. The shells I collected on an open piece of land in Brits. They're African Giant Land Snail shells, and I was lucky to find them in huge numbers. Unfortunately I don't have any extras, so until you find some shells maybe you can use pvc elbows as a temporary solution?

    I actually found some at this random China Market close to us. I also bought all the shells they had, but yours seem to have a better opening. I hope these will work, or else I will have to get some PVC. I will load a picture of the shells I bought to get your opinion.

    Thanks @Jack Stone , the multies have been nothing but a pleasure to keep.

    @WernerP , those shells should be 100% and will look really nice.

    Hi WernerP
    I have mixed Neothauma and escargot shells in my tanks - shellies do not like the large escargot shells (if they have a choice........) - the throat is too big to give protection against predators. Get some neothauma from JS if you can.
