I love these dishes I’ve ordered two now. They really help with telling which foods the crabs like and don’t like!

I hope I do this right.

I have one too, I love it! In her description it says they are approximately 5 in., there are other colors and styles. I want to get a flower one next, I think she may be out of the flower ones.

So jealous, I've been wanting to order one for so long! I'll get my hands on one eventually.

Makes me want to make my own. I wonder if baked sculpey would be safe for crabs. I'll have to do some research. Now you have me thinking!

You did it right! :wink:

I love the dish because it separates the food well and it doesn’t take up much space! I think I may get another haha!

How’s the new dish (for everyone who got one)? Thinking of getting one myself. How do the crabs like the separation? Do you find them topping it over at all? Spilling food out? Thanks!

I bought some painters plates from the dollar tree. It's 6 separated cups in a little plastic plate. (Nothing as fancy and beautiful as MAkers bowls though!)
My crabs love it, and I love how I'm able to see what they liked and didn't like.
I'm currently feeding from separate shells though. I felt that my crabs were getting bored with the same food dish in the same spot everyday so I put each food in a different shell and place them around the tank near the heater. They love it

I like the random food placement idea in shells! Keep it interesting!

Mine love it! Especially Crabina, she sits and guards it most of the night. I need to get another one so little Crabina can have one to herself.

Very cool. Am considering buying one (was gonna make it but for how cheap they are it won't be worth my time and cost).

I promise you won’t be disappointed. Plus you’ll be supporting the HCA members, that’s always a good thing.
