Ah sorry, I thought you meant land crabs, those are the only ones I have experience with.

To make this worth your time I'll tag someone? coralbandit saltwater60

Again, my apologies.

He can get out of his shell if he is trapped ..The one he is wearing may be too big ? Are there other choices for him or snail he can rob?
He is showing you his true inner self ...
