Store Review- ChollaQueen (Etsy)

Post by Motörcrab » Sat Dec 22, 2018 11:53 am

I stumbled across ChollaQueen on Etsy. They have a huge selection of various lengths 1" and up to custom sizes of natural Cholla harvested around Nevada. I like the look of the natural cholla compared to the store bought because there are wider variances and size differences. I just think it gives a more natural appearance inside the crabitat that way.

They also have a wide variety of foods, some of which I have never seen offered before. I picked up a large color enhancing pack with 25 different types of powder in small plastic containers.

I also picked up a protein pack of 9 foods. A fish bone calcium pack, and azomite. You can pick different sizes and they all come in plastic containers. They also go into detail on what part of a diet a particular food.

I had several questions before I placed my order and they thoroughly answered them quickly.

My order also arrived in less than a week well packaged.

So far I have had this stuff for about two weeks and the crabs and to an extent the Isopods have been eating it up.

Here's a link to their Etsy page.

I ordered a few items from her based off this review and they just came in today!

I ordered an 18” piece of cholla wood. I love it, but it was kind of pricey. I really need like 4 more pieces for what I’m wanting to do.

I also ordered a color boosting tropical flavor pack, purple sweet potato powder, carrot juice powder, beet root powder and black goji powder. I can’t wait to see what what the crabs like!

My only issue is the lids on the jars were screwed on so tight I had to use two pair of pliers to get them open

My wife had the same problem with the lids. I guess it's better than getting a powder bomb in the mail! when I have been giving my guys the powders I have been using the handle part of mini spoons to put it in their dish. I also noticed that some of them turn to a liquid in the humidity. I'm assuming they crabs will drink it like a fruit drink!

When I ordered my cholla wood I opted for an assortment pack. It was 8 pieces ranging from 9-14 inches.I wasn't looking for any particular sizes so I thought that was a better deal. Some of the pieces were not completely round. More of a "C" shape but they look good when you lay moss inside. I think they probably sell better quality cholla by the piece and sell their bits and pieces in bundles.

I'm glad my review helped!
