This weekend i bought a food dehydrator. Real cheap. Just to see if i can use it for my crabs. I dried some fruits, and bell peppers, and choped them in to small peaces. But even though they where nice and dry, the choped mix is a but sticky.
Can i just keep it in small boxes, of should i keep it in the freezer? And for how long will it keep?
The first batch dried mix (stolen from my bunnies ) whey realy LOVED!! Hope to make some more mixes soon!
And do you know "Salicornia" (used google translate. The dutch name is "zeekraal") Have you ever given it to your crabs. I gave them a small peace to try, and Shelly absolutely loved it. But i could not find it on the "safe to eat" list for them...

Hi! Your best bet on dehydrating fruit is to cut it into smaller pieces before you dry it so you don't have to cut it when it's chewy. I think it will keep longer that way also. You don't have to freeze it, but you can keep it in the fridge if your house is too warm.
I looked that plant up and between the fact that people can (and do) eat it and the fact that it grows many places hermit crabs are from in the wild; I'm going to say it's totally safe

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 !!
