A couple days ago I made a powdered blend of egg shells, freeze dried shrimp and mealworms, and drie...

Re: Baby food for hermit crabs

Naturals only means no added persavitives, colors. But it's not organic. I buy the pouch organic baby food. Whatever is on sale. Different flavors. I also get the crunchy snacks.

Re: New crabs

So exciting! When I was filling up my colony I adopted 2 crabs off of craigslist. The experience made me really angry because the guy didnt want to sell me the crabs if I wasn't going to buy his aquarium/crummy set up, which sounds like the lady who sold u 2 crabs. I told him he was lucky I was off...
