I just purchased some suitable Hermit Crab shells at a garage sale. Don't worry, they're not painted. They're natural. I got a whale eye and a shark eye along with a couple of shells with eliptical shaped openings. I even got a clam shell for use as a food dish.
4/1 - Stained crab is a boy! 1/5 - Got a 'sick crab' pack from Nat. I'm very impressed, it's a large pack so will feed all crabs! 30/6 - My new hygros have arrived! The big tank is 29degrees/81humidity. The little tank has the same temperature but 86humidity.

If you haven't done it already I would have suggested boiling in salt water; this washes, kills bacteria and smells enticing to the crabs. I have to say though, if you have PPs they don't often go for those types. If yours don't, you can always offer them on the SCP supply swap on Facebook.
≈19 clypeatus, 4 perlatus & 8 compressus in 4 tanks
I just realized that none of the shells I have, including the ones that came with the set up and the ones purchased from HCP, have never been boiled in salt water. The HCP's website has never said if any of their shells are inspected for damage or boiled in salt water prior to sale.
