Is this really ok for my crabbys????
I was told no it was not because it has a slime coat additive in it. I use API, which is very very cheap.
To tell you th truth, i have no idea... i never did much research on that becuase i found good one right away. sorry!
i have never heard of API but i will check that out!!!
is this what you are talking about?
it says it has stress coat too. But it says its "85C" so does taht mean there more than one type?
no, that picture is not the right stuff, but what they're talking about is from the same people. this is what they are talking about:
i found it at petco this weekend and i didnt see anything on it about slime coat.
...what about "Safe Soak & Spray" by HBH AquaPure ??? That is what I've been using in bottled spring water for all their drinking, bathing & misting bottle water from day one. I hope it's alright cuz I just got more of it. I don't spray the crabs themselves with it as it suggests on the bottle tho.
I also use the Crab Island T-Rex Hermit Crab Deodorizing Spray to spot clean, but again, not on the crabs themselves. The bottle reads, "All natural. Removes unleasant residue and odors. Keeps crab home smelling fresh and clean." ... "INGREDIENTS: Purified Water, Natural Enzymes, Beneficial Bacteria" ...DIRECTIONS: Spray our safe, non-toxic Hermit Crab Deodeorizing Spray onto Hermit Crab and surrounding areas of captivity."
Has anyone heard anything bad about these products? ???
I haven't heard anything bad, but I have never used them. Too many chemicals so I stay away.
what about zoo med reptisafe water conditioners for reptile drinking water?
i use it for my brothers turtle.. is it okay for hermit crabs?
