Shells

Hey, I'm looking at setting up a tank for some shell dwelling cichlids and didn't know if any of you would know of a good place locally to get some escargot shells. Also, any kind of large (approx. 2 inch) snail would work and I could just take the shell.

Most any of the oriental groceries will probably have what you are looking for.

Something so expensive and addictive HAS to be illegal. I'm just waiting for the police to break down my door and confinscate my fish food.

In case anyone else cares, I found some at World Market in Thornton. And most of the oriental groceries don't carry the escargot shells since it is a French dish.

Hummm... all the oriental groceries I have been to around the Denver area have them. (Though maybe because I am usually only going to the larger H-Marts or M-Marts.)

Of course, I have no idea what dish is made with them, but they seem pretty popular.
