    I know that apple tree branches are safe for parrots and other birds, and also lizards. I'm assuming that they are non toxic to hermits. What does everyone else think? I'm planning on getting a few large branches from my neighbor to put into my newer aquarium. After I cut them I'm going to give them time to dry out, then all of the bark will come off, they will be sanded down, washed, and baked if I can fit them into the oven (lol)

    Me i think they shuldnt do any harm if you do all that stuff to it.. But try at your own risk. But I dont think theyll do any harm. If you can your hermit crabs driftwood then mabye you can give them apple tree branches.

    I'll repost a few weeks after I have had them in. I know with parrots the only toxic part of the apple tree are the seeds in the apple.
