Can somebody make shells like the ones below in the hyperlink!? I would definitely invest in a few! Could we do them with monopoly pieces on top!? That would be awesome too!!!

I've just printed a couple of models from Thingiverse. You can search for Project Shellter on Yeggi. There are some interesting models in the results. Be aware, you might need to scale them to your needs.

Can you post pictures!? I actually don’t have a 3D printer so I was interested if other people had attempted this before I went on the search for one. :)

Has anyone successfully done this for reef hermits and had a hermit live in one?

I was just talking to the wife and saying this would be awesome but it looks like someone beat me to it. I thing having one look like a big backpack would be cool. Another that looks like a tank. Maybe a minivan. Fun stuff like that.

I did print a few but the hermits don’t care about them. I think it my be something about the surface.
 

Have you ever had a reef tank with no sump and how did it go?
