The Question is Kind of Fishy!

Here is a question from Reader Randy:

I have Hermit Crabs.  Can I use the old shredded coconut fiber that I used as their bedding for Worm Bedding?

Hi Randy,

It Depends.  Are Hermit Crabs Freshwater or Saltwater?

If Saltwater, I would not recommend it.  Coir holds water very well, which means it also woud retain salt well.  If Hermit Crabs are Freshwater, it would be loaded with the same bacteria as an aquaponic system which worms seem to love.
