sach,i know,i have to watch those gnats,they are so annoying,thanks to instant ocean ,i havent had any infestations in my tanks,thats my theory any ways!!!!,i am going to buy crickets but think im going to get dried,although live crickets would be ideal to eat any waste they too stink terribly,ugh,so probably dried,lol

HH,i wouldnt mind the chirping as thats what we fed our bassilica,but they stink,lol,gnats are annoying at the least, i was told by my friend deb,that if u pour some bleach in your sinks at night that would get rid of the gnats,she said they breed in any dark wet area,ugh. but i am hesitant to use bleach in my kitchen as thats where all my crab tat's are,im always up all night so i get to enjoy watching my crabbies. my crab tats are on the bar facing the living area,so they could watch tv if they want,lol.

ugh,gnats are lil beasties,i do have fly paper strip over the kitchen sink,FYI,hubby hates it,lol,i love the vidio's so.... thats why my crab's are always sitting like turtles on the top of the berm or logs facing the flat screen,lol,thats just too cute!!!!!!!! i will have to share that with mom tomorra,she'll like that,bless her heart,she's a crab lover too,wait till i tell her i need her to go to petsmart,only option,and get me a 40 or 55 gallon (true size) tank tomorra,lol,she loves it tho,and i want to be ready for my new babies!!!!!!!!!!!!
While I am normally a fan of whole food. I will join the choir of not giving them live....potentially stinky or repoducing bugs. Crabs live in out living/family room. ....Maybe if I had a seperate part of a larger home as a critter room I might think of it. But thanks for your suggestion.

canuks,sach i gave them tree bark and dried twigs,that mom gathered this morning,i removed 2 spiderwebs as i wasnt sure about those,all crabbies are enjoying the sunlight coming thru the door just behind and to the left of their cages. big red,concha and sneaky boy,all large pp's,are really munching on the tree bark,mom has pine trees so she is going to bring me some,that way i know they have no pesticides on /in them,i meant,lol pine cones,im interested to see if they like those too. and my crabs are in the kitchen,which is really an open floor plan so they can look out side,watch tv,just be part of our family,we adore them,as i know you love your too.
