You know, that's a great question, as both the Epicurean Hermit site and Hermit Crab Cuisine have only 'celery leaves' listed. I have put celery stalks (the yellow, softer ones in the middle of the celery bunch) in the crabs' food bowl but I never thought to look to see if they ate it. I know they ate the leaves - those things got dragged and buried all over the place. I tentatively say yes, but I'd like confirmation from someone else before you give it to them.

I've put in celery, it's not a big hit. I'm guessing it's just like iceburg lettuce, there's no real nutritional value there.
