When I have boiled eggs, I keep the shells after I peel them. I used to crush them but now I just break them up a bit.
And if you are in a pet store looking for cuttle bone - it's in the bird section! I had a heck of a time finding it!
I feed a combination of dry and fresh foods. I order dry from Canadian Chubby Crab and the Hermit Crab Patch.

New to crabbies myself so i don't have much insight to offer, but i love that mesh you have to let them navigate and climb out of your pools. Where'd you find it?
