Changed out the fresh food dish tonight. Filled it up with white basmati rice (maybe not the most nutritious, but they love it haha), banana, spinach, frozen brine shrimp, broccoli, red bell pepper, shrimp exo, and dried calendula. They've got a dried food dish too (that I usually change out every Wed and Sun) filled with loads of goodies as well. :)

darn, some of y'all going all out for the crabs! Mine seem to be very picky, and they really don't eat much... However, they always chow down on riced cauliflower and also on popcorn. They never touch the blueberries, apples, watermelon, chicken, etc... I Evan read somewhere that they like cat food (wet) so I even tried that to no success... But Cauliflower and popcorn are always a big hit.

Just prepped tonight's dinner for the crabbos: celery leaves, green cabbage, shredded carrots, blueberry, honey, ground flaxseed, dried squid, dried octopus, dashi kombu seaweed, kelp powder, dragon fruit powder, & THCP Midnight Ecstasy dry food mix. Plus the calcium pit with cuttlebone, green sand, and crushed oyster shells.

All three of my crabs are up right now (or at least they were last night!) so I'm hoping for some munching action in the crabitat tonight.

For my Crabbies its a 1/4tsp of HCP Red White and Blueberries, with some boiled and ground up eggshell in one scallop shell that I use for their food, and in another is a 1/4tsp of HCP Surf N Turf, for both did add just a tiny bit of the HCP Mineral Supplement to them. Right now I only have one crab that is active, the other 5 are all burrowed under the substrate.

Did pick up organic chia, flax, rolled oats, long grain brown rice, quinoa, and fennel along with a jar of organic bee pollen. So will slowly start trying to make some of my own food mixes using these grains and the freeze dried river shrimp, meal worms and crickets that I have. Also ground up in a coffee grinder about 12 quartered and dehydrated Carolina Reaper peppers that my brother grew, only thing he used was the potting soil and light watering, no fertilizers or pesticides. Funny thing is that plan is still trying to produce peppers, he has already pulled probably 9 or 10 dozen peppers off it and it still has about another 2 dozen left that aren't quite ripe yet with probably 3 or 4 that are still green. Already have my brother who is planning on erecting a greenhouse/hothouse willing to grow various veggies for the crabs.
