Tagged: Newbie Questions!
I am a new crab owner. I have a few questions…
Where is the best place to buy Greensand? I ordered some from this site and also saw it on Amazon, but haven’t seen it anywhere local.
I’ve read that hermit crabs like variety in their diet and I have many things for them to eat. I have been putting a mix of dry things that I leave in the tank for a few days (ground flaxseed, dried shrimp, chia seeds, oats, coco flour, nuts) and then 2-3 fresh items that I change out daily. I have been switching up the fresh items, so they aren’t being offered the same thing over and over and get bored with it. My question is should I only offer 2-3 dry things as well or keep giving a mix of all of them? I haven’t had the crabs too long and I want to make sure they are eating, so I thought a variety would be, but I don’t want them to get bored either. How many food options do you give your crabs?
