I have two peach trees inmy yard. I harvested a bunch of the leafs to see if the hermit crabs would eat them and figured at least they'd be leafs litter, they have eaten any as far as ive noticed. Long story short,, I was reading a "bad food list" post on a different site and saw peach on it.. I took all the peach leafs out of the tank that I could see.. Does anyone have any knowledge of this?? All the leafs were in the decomposition process.

That list (doesn't matter where it was; they all use the same outdated list) is inaccurate. If they aren't safe, the crabs won't eat them but just because they don't eat them the first time (remember it would be TINY nibbles) doesn't mean they aren't safe; just they don't need those specific nutrients at the moment. I have done peach leaves & they have been fine.

I have done peach leaves as well and they did want them the first time I gave them to them, but oh my, the next time I gave them some they had them all over the place and were munching for days. The crabs are great at determining what they can eat and what they can't so I normally just try it a few times, and if they don't like it at all then I just don't give it to them again.
