Description

Fluker’s Hermit Beach Sand Substrate is the key to keeping your hermit crab happy and healthy through her entire lifespan. This mixture is a perfectly balanced blend of carefully selected, natural materials, including sand, coconut fiber, salt and calcium carbonate, to provide a great consistency for burrowing. Probiotic is also added to help with the breaking down of organic waste, keeping your hermit crab’s habitat clean. This blend is made to be non-stick, with no harmful colors or dyes added.

Key Benefits
  • Premium blend of natural sand, coconut fiber, calcium carbonate, sea salt mix and probiotics is the superior choice for healthy land hermit crabs
  • Promote natural tunnel digging & healthy molting. Hermit crabs dig to hunt for food and when it is time to molt. It is very important to fill your crab's habitat with enough moist sand for the molting process. The deep moist sand protects your crab during the molting process and prevents dehydration, which is vital for your crab's longevity.
  • Silica sand packs well and the coconut fiber helps with water retention. Calcium and sea salt replicate the exact sand hermit crabs find in their natural environment. Probiotics (beneficial bacteria) help maintain a clean environment.
  • Non-stick blend won't cling to your crab like calcium carbonate "sand"
  • No harmful colors or dyes added

Instructions

Fill tank evenly with Fluker's Premium Sand. The minimum depth should be at least three times the size of your largest hermit crab. Moisten the sand with purified water so it packs well. (The consistency should be what you would use to build a sand castle.) Once installed, you should check the substrate periodically to ensure that it stays moist.

  • Do not use!

    Calcium sand is not good for crabs! If you want to glue them in their shells, then by all mean, go for it. If ypu want to over spend on sand, go for it. Or you can just use regular child's play sand and get a brick of compressed eco earth, and mix it to a sand castle consistency of a 5:1 ratio (5parts sand to 1 part ee)

    This product is amazing! The sand is not like the calcium sand you would expect it would be. The sand contains lots of moisture which is amazing for the crabs and does NOT harden when misted. It has the coconut fibers that the crabs need while still being a sandy substrate that crabs are familiar with. Great job Fluker's!
