Is all playsand safe

This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

Before I dive in and make another mistake, I just wanted to ask if this play sand was okay to make my substrate mix. Thanks in advance!

Well, I did a substrate swap today and I think my crabs are loving it (pics below). The best part is that one of them WAS BURIED in the calci sand and he was still alive!!! I was so relieved! I actually think he reburied himself in the new substrate already and that makes me happy. The first pic below is of the little guy that got rescued. Thank you everyone for all of your great advice! I couldn’t have done it without you!
