Trying Something New

Post by hermiwormi » Thu May 17, 2018 6:54 pm

Last night, I placed a few plain cheerios in with the veggies, fruits, and other food and it turned out the crabs liked them alot! It was really funny to see that out of all of the Cheerios, there was only a piece of one cheerio and crumbs left.

I feed Cheerios to my crabs sometimes, and I thinks it’s funny when I do.
You can leave them whole, or you can crush them, i like to crush them :)

If you feel comfortable with it, KIX was an even bigger hit when my hubby use to eat it.

The Addiction used to sell baby food puffs as crab treats, and those were always popular, too! They are similar to Cheerios but organic.

Oh man...that is a cereal that I forgot about!! LOL...those are great with some sugar! :P

I've noticed a few of the crab food shops sell the puffs. They sprinkle them with spirulina or chlorella. :)

Haha! it's very funny and cute to see the leftovers from the crabs. I will definitely be checking out these food shops and look at some options! Usually I shop at Whole Foods for fresh food that I will feed the crabs.
