Looking at these menus ... are your crabs big eaters? Or do you just put tiny amounts in the tank? I have two crabs and they hardly eat anything. Their favorite things are boiled egg, sliced almonds and cuttlebone. They LOVE the cuttlebone. I've tried them on strawberries and grapes -- they won't eat them. They've currently got cantaloupe in there, and they've not touched it, but I'm hopeful. I've also tried leaves from the approved list, to no success, and the same with lettuce. I bought some of the crab food on Etsy (that has dried greens and ground corn, and is all nice and fishy smelling), and they hardly touch that. I put honey in there once and it disappeared, so I guess they ate it.

Just not sure what else to try for my finicky guys. They're worse than my cats!

Hi there! My guys don't care for strawberries or grapes either...and I have four tanks! Actually, my crabs do like the green tops of strawberries. Anyways...crabs take tiny bites. Sometimes crabs drag stuff off and bury it also. Don't get discouraged because you think they aren't eating. More than likely they are, and you just don't notice. :)
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com

Everything was organic tonight.

Naval Oranges
Poppy Seeds
Honey
Honeycomb
Molasses
Alfalfa Greens

tonights buffet, my first attempt at sushi ever, and it didnt turn out bad. havent seen any real eating, but my most active guy has already investigated quickly. Nori, strawberry leaves from my garden (100% organic!) black beans, mango, carrots and raw shrimp.

my next try at sushi will be swapping out the mango for kiwi, and shrimp for salmon.

Sushi looks really nice!

I tried fried chicken tonight, they like it!
It’s just raw chicken, olive oil, oatmeal, and then lightly cooked on a skillet.
Here is tonights meal if you want to know!

Fried Chicken
Krill
Lettuce Salad with Egg
KIX Corn Cereal

It only took a minite before there were takers.
