As a treat it should be fine. I give my Skippy peanut butter on occasion and they do just fine with it...I try and mix it with something or spread it thinly, but all the same, they do enjoy the safe nut and seed "butters" :)

Ive heard them called "Hedge Balls". They are sold around here for winter insect repellents that you can have inside or where ever...

I would say no, since they are an insect repellent, makes me thing they have an "odor" to them or oils that is not appreciated.

Tiger Lilies are "asiatic lilies" I believe and are toxic. Only the TRUE Day Lilies are ok for hermit crabs to eat. :) (The day lily usually has one bloom on a stem and long leafs at the base of the plant rather than multiple flowers on a stalk with short leafs all the way up the plant stem like the...

Gathering items from outside, especially in a city, makes me a tad nervous unless you know a lot about their surroundings. Cities tend to be dirty--not like dirt dirty but like pollution from cars, pesticides, fertilizers, run-off from who knows where. I would really stick with a "sure thing"--somet...

Some airstones bubble a lot, others only make small bubbles. Mine only make small bubbles so I dont have water being misted everywhere ;)

Make sure that you have them completely under the water, sometimes that will cause them to bubble less.

I have not seen much--if any bickering until this last page, people have been civil in their discussions.

Im not sure Ive ever been referenced to as a hermit crab hoarder. :lol: Interesting. The majority of my crabs have been adopted, so dont be too quick to judge my background....in fact 20 of them are from a very close friend who could no longer care for them. The amount of crabs you have is totally p...
