Re: Kilimanjaro's Guide to Hermit Crab Nutrition

Im not arguing that they don't need some but this recent trend in saying copper sulfate is okay scares me. How much they need has not fully been established, but literature for crustaceans does exist, and its not very much before it becomes toxic. (See World Aquaculture Society Crustacean Nutrition)...

Re: Kilimanjaro's Guide to Hermit Crab Nutrition

About copper sulfate: In the sulfate form it is added as an antifungal, not a nutritional supplement. Sulfate is digested too fast for it to really be okay. It will spike their levels once they eat it. Who knows how much is really in the food, but the safety range is very small. When people eat, our...

This site says it has pesticide purposes.

I am sorry, but I forget the specific thing it does, because I have been inactive on the forum that I talked to the botanist on my account was deleted.

Phew, Im glad I caught this thread. First off in the US it is NOT illegal to exclude ingredients in foods. It goes by a state by state basis, there are national standards, but not laws. However, companies usually comply with all states in order to save money on labeling, why would they bother to pay...

Pretty much any crab you buy is going to have PPS, unless you get them from the crabbage patch. Sounds like you are doing well. I am veg and my protein sources are just my kibbles I make, broccoli, snap peas, spinach, shimp, bloodworms and plankton. Hermits really need lean animal protein though, ma...
