Zoo Med Hermit Crab Sand Review

4 out of 5 Stars

If you want sand that is guaranteed safe for hermit crabs, here you go. On the other hand this sand is extremely expensive. A 2 lb bag ranges from $2.00 to $4.00 depending on which place you shop. In order to fill an entire crabitat those 2 lb bags will become costly very fast. If you have a smaller 10 gallon crabitat that holds hermit crabs for your children, then this may be the only time that Zoo Med Hermit Crab Sand would actually be a good investment.

This is the only colored sand available on the market today that is 100% proven safe for hermit crabs. The dyes used are not harmful to the animals health. There are a variety of colors available. From green to yellow you can personalize your child's tank in a way they will adore and so will your crabs. And because of this, those $2.00 bags are well worth the investment. Don't substitute colorful aquarium gravel for sand simply because of the color choices. Gravel just isn't proper for hermit crabs. On the other hand, this sand is the perfect choice. Your child will be able to pick a color they like. And that one trait makes this sand stand out from the rest. If that's what you are looking for then this should be your only choice. But if you want a natural sand appearance this is a bit expensive and there are better options out there.
