Substrate Meal, Apparently

Post by hermiwormi » Tue Jul 10, 2018 2:31 am

I went to check and see if I could catch a crab eating, only to see 3 of 5 picking and eating the coconut fiber bits out of a corner where there's some of it not mixed in with the playsand. Meanwhile, a bit earlier, I gave them a huge feast, including brand new items. Silly crabs!

They can eat the substrate, it’s actually good for them
