Wood?

Post by bbcraft22 » Tue Aug 23, 2016 7:05 am

I just got a dead tree branch and microwaved it. Then, I put it in the tank for them to climb. They climb it, and also eat it! Is that bad???

Depends on the type of tree. Some are toxic and some are excellent crab food! And it is best to collect bark or wood from pristine areas where there aren't a lot of sources of pollution, no chemical fertilizers, and absolutely NO bug repellents.
