    Due to my recently laziness, I didn't get to using half of a pack of peas I bought.

    They've started to sprout, and I have no intention of eating them. But this reminded me of some sprouting seeds at the HCAS, and so my question is, can my crabs eat these?

    Can I put a little cup in there and let them keep sprouting in the tank? Or do something else creative with them?

    I wonder....how well would these peas sprout in wet sand?

    I have no idea. First of all, I have never sprouted peas before, in wet sand or wet soil.

    Sand is good for initially sprouting plants (it allows a lot of water down, and there are really no barriers to growing baby roots) but not good for supporting most plants - there is little to no organic material.

    In tanks, the high concentration of salt would make sprouting things very difficult unless they are plants designed to grow in salt environments (it kills plants not accustomed to it).
