    Hi there, when I bought my three new hermies at the petstore the person who works there says in their book about hermies it says you can feed them a peanut butter/ relish mix and they really like it. :confused: Never read anything about giving hermies relish. Anyone tried it before or think its okay ?

    Id say no, since pickels are the main ingredient for relish and they are in liquid that has salt.
    Peanut butter as long as its organic and salt free, is perfectly fine. It's a great source of protein!

    Agreed. Pickles are made in a vinegar (acidic)/salt brine. Relish in particular will have all kinds of additives, such as sugar, preservatives, food coloring, et.
    I'd really be interested in knowing what book they refer to at the pet store. Can you find out the name and author?

    Glad your question was answered.
    Just wondered if you can find out the name and author of their reference book? Would like to know what information is available regarding land hermit crabs, as I always want to learn more about these guys and don't know any current books available.
    Thanks!

    Either that, or just give them a call...much appreciated. If you have a receipt for any purchases, the phone # might be on it.
