Default Calvus breeding shells site?

Hey guys,

One of you recently posted a link to a site selling these??? I had an old site that doesn't exist anymore. Could someone repost that link?

Thanks,
Russ

This site has a bunch of really nice shells. I've ordered through them once and it was a good experience...nice shells.

This one's for those breeding bells if you're interested.

Thanks John.

While the bells are effective, the shells look better for the photography I want to do. My Tonna Tessalata shells have been very effective with my Muzi & BCWP; however, their white color causes me headaches with photography. The white gets very overexposed and if you compensate for that, everything else is way under exposed. I think Tonna Oleria might work well. I do have a bunch of Striped Fox shells already. They have worked ok in the past. Maybe, I'll just give them a go before buying anything esle???

I know your pain, but just let them get a nice covering of green/brown algae and problem solved.

Green would be nice, brown is unacceptable 👹

Don't really get any algae anymore
