When you first got your crabs, when did they first start eating?
mine are most likely just adjusting so im trying not to worry, but its almost been a week and i have hardly seen them touch what i give them
-broccoli
-two types of pellets, one is what my rescued crab was eating before i adopted it, im trying to wean her off it.
-banana :banana:
-oranges
-dried crickets, mealworm, shrimp

Yes I literally think that most of the time they barely eat the only way I know they eat is because they are still living lol

Just keep offering a variety of nutritious foods. Be sure to read the 'nutrition' care sheet, as well as the 'commercial food' one. Many commercial foods are not safe, depending on additives (the care sheet explains it). They also need protein and calcium daily.
When crabs are small, you may not notice them eating much. I swear that for the first couple of years I had my crabs, the only way I knew they were eating is that they were alive and pooping! LOL!
