Is there a reason why you don't use the HCA food Pyramid? viewtopic.php?f=25&t=92554

There's nothing wrong with the one posted, it's just more updated. The food pyramid was originally created in 2008. Both of these are fine, and neither have to be followed to the letter. As long as the crabs are offered a variety of foods that meet their dietary requirements, they'll eat what they need and get their nutrients.

When I first read that one GB, I was so confused! This one was a little easier to start with. But I printed it out and started reading it again and it makes more sense now

So I finally finished organizing everything into their categories. I'm a list person, so it's much easier for me to do things when I list it all out and organized.
So here's my lists. Keep in mind, these are only items I own, not everything. Just foods I've bought and currently have in stock.

Alright, so now that I have all that.... should I combine some items and make mixes? I have a lot of single food items and it might be easier if I made some mixes? What y'all think?
