Started playing w dehydrator finally.
Used it for frozen fish food. Frozen brine shrimp w spirulina and frozen reef frenzy. I can never tell if either one gets eaten. After dehydration I put both in and the brine shrimp w spirulina was completely gone. Reef frenzy might’ve had a little action. And now I finally have a camera in the tank I’m watching what they eat. Only one crab up but so far he also likes frozen organic pineapple and mango. He also frequents the worm castings/, green sand / calcium dish.

Popped Popcorn with kelp and spirulina powder didn’t seem to get touched last night. It’s usually a big hit but I’ve never put both kelp and spirulina on it together.

Just have to keep telling myself to ignore them- sometimes I think putting the tank in my room wasn't such a good idea :lol:
