Crabs and Crickets

Post by Sherman12Sherman » Sat Oct 20, 2018 9:24 pm

Will crabs eat crickets?
Are crickets able to live with crabs?
Will they hurt the crabs?

1. Yes
2. Never put live crickets in a crab tank. They can reproduce and annoy the crabs.
3. I don't think they would hurt them but they would certainly pester them.

Thanks. Would any dead crickets do or do they need to be fairly fresh.
Trying to give them a more simulated diet since they are scavengers.

I feed my crabs freeze dried crickets and leave them in there until they quit eating them and then rotate it.

Crickets are known to burrow, so there is a potential that they could come across a moulter...
