    You should definately cross reference it to the safe/unsafe food lists from Epicurean. I haven't checked to see if everything is safe, I posted it really quick.

    Off the top of my head, I think everything is safe, but the dill. I thought I remembered that as being on the no-no list.

    Could you post the link in which you read this? Citrus fruit has been fed to them for years now, it's perfectly safe.

    Citrus isn't my crabs' favorite foods, but they do eat it. How would it be bad for them?
