Can hermit crabs use this as salt?

Post by Emlyx » Sat Aug 29, 2020 8:29 am

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?

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
