    when i first started out. i used metal in my tank. like the suction cups with metal hooks, and soon learned that metal is a no-no. so now i use the same suction cups without the hooks

    What is so bad about that salt, exactly? (My crabs seem to like the salt water I mix)

    I'm new to the hermit crab game. May I ask what is unsafe about the food products you have listed? (Hermit crab variety bites,Tetra Fauna Hermit crab cakes,& Fmr land hermit crab food.& I guess zoo med's calci sand.) I have the crab cakes but my crabs don't eat them anyway.

    Thank you very much!

    Commercial foods often have chemicals that are thought to harm hermies. You're better off to just not use commercial foods. Your crabs don't eat the crab cakes probably because they don't want to touch them. ;) Give them some fresh food instead, and they'll chow right down! I used to think that my crabs didn't eat, but then I took all the pet store food out of their diet, and now it is very obvious that they eat! :)

    Look @ the ingredinents (Sorry 4 spelling errors) on the commerical food you have,then google it. You'll find that there's all kind of bad stuff in it,plus you don't what's in it & what's not. They don't have to put it on the label. They don't care if they hurt your hermies they just want the $$$ & it may even "kill" your crab(s) so then again they would be getting more $$$. (If you go out & buy more hermies/food from the pet store)
