Chia Sprouts

Chia sprouts have impressive nutritive (A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B15, B17, C, D, E, K) and antioxidant properties. They are well-know to be safe for hermit crabs. The seeds can be sown directly into the substrate of a hermit crab tank for a live plant feature. I have some sprouting in our tank now, but we have not noticed the crabs paying much attention to them yet.

Lots of wonderful information can be found here.
