Dry and frozen foods and recipes and DIY crabitat stuff

Post by Dukkie » Sat Jul 25, 2020 2:58 pm

My daughter recieved a hermit crab a few years ago. We've learned a lot. Here is the latest on what I've learned, mostly from HCA. In picture form. We have 3 crabs so all feeding is based on what they eat. Food is checked daily but mostly it's refreshed every other day. It needed to be simple and organized so our 10 yo, now 13 yo, would do the feeding.

In the soda bottle dish something like one frozen item, one dried medley, one protein (rotating whole mealworms, crickets, grasshopper, dried shrimp, or frozen shrimp)

Coconut cave from coconut fiber planter
Water storage
Dried Food recipes
Frozen food simplified fruit, veggies, meat.

If you have questions let me know. I'll edit this post to add more info and details.
