    it can attract book lice which are not that harmful- mold is from foods left 90% of the time- I dont like to use it alone but do mix it

    I strongly recommend playsand. It is safe and economical. When you moisten it, it makes a great substrate. Just make sure you put the appropriate amount needed for your crabs to tunnel and build molt caves.
