Crab Food from Pet Stores

Post by hermit_crab_mommy » Wed Jul 08, 2020 10:16 pm

So I saw that crab food (like pellets) are not too good for hermit crabs. Is this true? And if it is, does that mean feed them other things along with the food or avoid it completely? What about treats and/or other reptile food? I am a new hermit crab owner and have been feeding them their store bought food along with a new food each day including watermelon, blueberries, cucumber, and peach. I also gave them pet store peanut treats and have store fruit treats. I can’t find all the answers in the forums.

Here is the link to the Care Sheets. There are sheets about commercial food, nutrition, safe and unsafe/ unpopular foods, as well as pretty much all other aspects of crab care.
