Cacti & Succulents in my tank?

This is where you discuss the conditions of your crabitat -- temperature, humidity, substrate, decorating, etc.

Cacti & Succulents in my tank?

Post by heyitseggs2 » Wed Aug 29, 2018 9:15 am

Hello
I was wondering if I could put things like cacti and succulents in my crabitat? For decoration or maybe if the crabs would eat some of it? I don't know if it would be poisonous but I just wanted to know because I think it would look cool.

Cacti and succulents tend to require a desert environment, not tropical so I'm going to say probably not.

I know they can eat prickly pear cactus - but you would want to make sure it is organic before adding it to your tank. Even then - like mentioned already, it might not survive!
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com
