Water bowl question

Post by angelbearpuppy » Sat Jul 21, 2018 3:00 pm

I like more of a natural look in my crabitat. Would it be acceptable to use the Aquarian pebbles/gravel in the bottom of a water bowl to help the crab climb out. Not thr painted kind but the river rocks.
I have owned Hermit Crabs for 2 Years

I have 1 E named Monkey and 2 PP named Shy Guy and Little P

I also own 1 PP named Dory who stays in my classroom

They are fine as long as they don’t have a glossy finish to them.

Edit: some river pebbles are polished with a machine. Some are shiny because of paint. Do not use the kind that have a clear coat on them.
