    I have before,and my hermies loved it! I guess because,it's tangy and sweet. :D
    If it's not let me know though,I think I only gave it to them once & that was in the summer.

    Grapefruit is similar to an orange, in the sense that they are both Citrus fruits.

    i would guess it's okay since it is a citrus fruit and citrus fruit is fine for them to have so it should be fine for them to have it.

    Grapefruit is fine. My crabs love the white pithy part after it has dried completely. It has wonderful fiber. If your crabs like it, try pommelo or pumello (you'll see it spelled a million different ways, but it is like a big greenish yellow grapefruit looking thing that tastes awesome!).
