Just thought we could get this started for spring and everyone could list some of the outdoor greens they have found to feed to their crabs. I used google to ID the ones I've picked: Dandelion, henbit, sheep sorrel, chickweed.

I've tried with mine: -Various grass from the yards we've had -Dandelion (flowers, leaves, roots all both fresh & dried) -Clover -Lamb's Ear -Those little flowers that look like teeny daisies -Other different flowers from my yard -Oak, maple, dogwood, gum, pecan leaves -Baby's breath -Snowdrops
I give my crabs a lot of fresh or dried plant life
≈19 clypeatus, 4 perlatus & 8 compressus in 4 tanks
When I googled some weeds I got curious as to what you could find in different parts of the country, so I googled edible weeds in New Mexico and AZ.....amazing what you can find in each state and curious if some of the crabbers have tried the stuff.
I would still google edible plants for your area, a lot of things I want to get are best picked in the fall....so I'm trying to start a calendar as to what I can get each month so I don't miss the goodies (:
Live marigolds are also good at keeping skeeters out of the tank I learned last summer to keep them on top of the tank and then when they die off I just throw them in. Seems I'm cursed with mosquitos no matter where I live.
kitty: Not much activity in my tank. One morning I got up and it looked like a tornado went through it. Water bowls tumbled, food dishes upside down. Fixed it all up and have been waiting eversince. ! Nothing. DARN !!
