Pre-Mixed Saltwater Solution?

Hi there, I was scrolling through Petsmart to look for things for when I get my hermit crabs, and I've been looking into getting pre-mixed solutions. I found this one by "Thrive". Does it work/Is it safe? https://www.petsmart.ca/reptile/cleaning-and-water-care/water-conditioners/thrive-hermit-crab-f...

Re: Baby food for hermit crabs

Naturals only means no added persavitives, colors. But it's not organic. I buy the pouch organic baby food. Whatever is on sale. Different flavors. I also get the crunchy snacks. They look like cheerios. For the pouch I just put a very small bit in their dish. Depends how many crabs you have and ho...

I do not believe so
sadly most products made for crabs aren’t safe for them
most people on here will tell you to use instant ocean which what I use
but here’s a link to the water page if you need

Can hermit crabs use this as salt?

Hi!
Before I buy my hermit crabs or their supplies, I found a soaking salt for a reasonable price on petsmart.ca.
It is called
"Thrive Tropical Hermit Crab Soaking Salt"
Can they use this or does it have to be a different salt?

Re: Cat Food

Most cat foods have preservatives, salt and other things that aren't good for hermit crabs. The hermit crabs could technically eat it, but feeding that stuff is strongly discouraged here at the HCA and other organizations. I do offer my crabs one type of Fancy Feast cat treats. They come in single ...
