Don't forget that even though something is poisonous to you, it might not be for the crabs.
I've been feeding mine some dried pokeweed for over a year now and they love it. Didn't touch it fresh, but they devour it dry. It's not something that we can eat, but I thought I'd give it a test run and see how the crabs like it. No ill effects or anything.
I agree with you emberfusion, I've tried different stuff like that, I just make sure I put other greens in so they have the option to try it if they like it and many times now they pick the ones we can't eat (:
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.
Yeah, I remember my dad telling me as a kid (he used to own a landscape company) that marigolds are natural bug repellents
≈19 clypeatus, 4 perlatus & 8 compressus in 4 tanks
The only bugs my Marigolds didn't repel when I had some planted outside a few years ago were the Japanese Beetles. They ate all of the leaves and flowers and they where still clinging to the Marigold skeletons looking for more!
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 !!
