    Does it matter if the Oyster Shell gets wet from the rain? I poured off the water and a few seemed to still eat it. Just wondering if its still beneficial when its water logged? [​IMG]

    It does not matter, but if they don't eat it right away it can get moldy over a short time...

    It's fine. Oysters live in the water!
