Thanks anthrax for the info!  I just saw both of those ( calvus and multis) discussed a lot on. The shell dweller site so I wanted to ask......

Also thanks for info on aggression. I think that aggression is the only thing im used to haha( American cichlids and hemichromis elongatus) so I'll have to research a bit more before I make a definitive decision .

So no pair  Sad  but got the male gold occellutus,  the leloupi, the juli (in another tank, thinking of trading him it for a multis) and the long fin chocolate pleco. Overall it was still a good trade off for both of us. He got blue pearl shrimps, he wanted  less maintenance shrimps barely feedings but bi-monthly or tri-monthly (20 shrimps in a 30gal). And I got a few fish I liked but no pair  Sad  better than none.

Anyone have a female or juvis occellutus? And/or some other shellies for sale (Fish box members only)?

i dont think anybody around here had ocellatus anymore. adal was the last guy i sold some too WAY back when i had em. id say just do a small order for some thru the wet spot. i would not buy any less then 4 tho as extra females is fine just need the single male tho. really stinks the female couldnt take all his aggression (it happens a lot with shellies if they dont have enough space) its the reason ive suggested caution with ocellatus, specious, and melagris to a lot of the other people on here. i wish you luck but be ready with an extra tank to put unwanteds into. you gotta be johny on the spot with removing them, they can quickly become picked on to death. ive even found unwanteds dead in buried shells... weeks later mind you Sad. if you have any questions feel free to text me wes, been working long hours lately so its just easier. pics of the tank would help too. on a side note id watch that lelupi if you wanted to add it to the shelly tank, they are notorious for killing shellies for food both in captivity and in the wild (they naturally prey on shellies)

Huh. Shoot I left them all in the 20gal tank and I'm in California for 2 days. Hope they are alive when I get back home.

Shells have arrived. Haven't resized and uploaded the pictures yet to the website. But here are the raw images.

Is the quarter included?  jocolor 

That is a lot of nice choices. I have to stay away from this one or else I will end up with a shellie tank.

Nice to see all the interest in shellies. I've kept brevis and stappersii. I still have one old male brevis. I think I've had him around eight years now.
