New Bamboo Hide

Post by Randomperson428 » Tue Apr 10, 2018 7:08 pm

Hello everyone!

I got a bamboo hide for my two crabs earlier today. It's a pretty large size and I figured my bigger crab would enjoy a place to hide that actually fit his shell. I didn't check online to see if it was safe for crabs or not though. After researching a little, I learned that lucky bamboo was toxic, but I definitely don't have lucky bamboo because this piece is way larger than lucky can grow. Is a regular bamboo tree alright for crabs? I'll leave a picture of the hide in my tank as well as the online listing from the company below. https://imgur.com/a/jCF0Y

Thanks!

That's a cute hide.
It should be okay. :)

Real bamboo is safe, and those hides are supposed to be untreated.
