Holy cow, that's amazing! Meanwhile, I have my little dry crushed mixes.. They don't really look nice, and certainly not that nice lol.

Haha, it's all been accumulated over time.It's mostly dry from various online crab stores. Since they only eat a small amount my dry foods last forever. Some of it I've had for over a year, and I'm trying to use up. ( I still have a few things left from a sampler I bought from Wode! lol) Plus, they don't always eat this nice, I just happened to snag a piece of the fiances mushrooms for them, and I wanted a banana, so they got a piece of that too. It was my day off so I took the time to make it look nicer than normal out of boredom. It didn't last very long haha. Thank-you though! :)

That's interesting! Mine love walnuts. I went to my local health food store and purchased a package of walnuts that were not in a bag. They were bought bulk from the health food store.
Truly blessed to have incredible creatures, wonderful friends and my amazing family in my life!! I'm very thankful & grateful for all of them! www.thehealthyhermit.com

I should see if I can buy some like that. Maybe they'd like those. The ones I have are just the chopped and bagged kind people use for cooking.

This may be a dumb question, but do you leave food in your crabitats or do you feed at night and remove it in the morning and then feed again at night? I always see pictures of everyone's crabs swarming their food dishes on this thread. I put food in each day and leave it in there all day and night. I change it daily or every other day depending on what it is (some things spoil over night or mold and I put in fresh) but I always have a dishes of different foods in there at all times. I've been under the impression that my four crabs eat at different times of the day/ night so I thought I was supposed to keep food in there at all times. My guys never all run to their food. I offer all types of options but never really see them all come out and go to the food. I guess my question is how many of you have feeding times and how many have food available at all times in their crabitats?
