Pansy stems

Pansy flowers and leaves are listed on the safe food list, but I’m wondering if the stems are also safe?

Re: What's on today's menu & recipe sharing

Last night I gave them tuna, strawberries and the tops, celery, red bell pepper, tomato, and catappa leaves. Two of the crabs were on the dish within ten minutes!

Re: How do you keep your tank humid?

The only thing I would worry about with the moss balls is the temperature. Their natural habitat is in cool waters of Northern Japan, Iceland, and Scotland. Long term in 80*F+ can take its toll on them.

I walked into the room and first spotted Emma sitting on the lid of the tank then I saw the unnamed E hanging from the heat mat on the back. It was certainly a sight :P I guess they had climbed the pl...
