Store review - TheHealthyHermit (Etsy)

Post by ciaraalston » Thu Sep 06, 2018 3:14 pm

Hey admins, please delete if not allowed.

For any new folks that are looking for a place to shop for truly organic hermit crab food/items for the tank.... y'all check out TheHealthyHermit on etsy! The store belongs to @GotButterflies and it's truly an amazing place! I've made several orders already, I'm currently waiting by the mailbox for my most recent one. Her customer service is out of this world!! My crabs love everything I serve them from her store, especially the fruity flowers mix. Everytime I serve that specific mix, the food bowl is EMPTY by morning.
I made an entire 23 day rotation feeding schedule off of everything I ordered. She even checked on me after the storm, luckily it missed us completely besides a little rain, but she made sure to check in!! It means a lot!

You can buy organic foods from local stores, or make it yourself. There's lots of options. Personally, my options are limited where I am, and I love supporting friends in their businesses anyway, so her store is perfect for me. If you haven't checked it out, I highly recommend it! I'll let y'all know when my latest order arrives!!! Should be within a week.

I just put my first order in! I’ve tried other shops and occasionally bought a few things here and there. I just got to looking at her shop tonight and definitely went a little overboard ordering things Can’t wait until it gets here!

It's hard to tell with mine... I'm still a newbie though. I've seen them partake and then for days nothing seems touched then again I also leave tidbits around not in the dish so Lord knows what is happening now. I've had to use all dried lately because of a fruit fly problem in my house and fresh stuff in there has only made it worse. I'm really looking forward to the stuff I ordered though because it's beyond just the basics I ordered before from THCB.

Mine are the same way. They actually don't mess with fresh foods. Anytime i serve corn on the cob, fresh raspberries, or any other fresh food, they don't touch it. They only eat dried food, and will drag some fresh coconut around the tank. So i gave up fresh foods and just stick with dried mixes. Maybe some day that will change, i'll keep trying on occasion.
