It apparently such as for instance bacon, but one to dosage maybe not feel like a very healthy food choices!

These Crabs Won’t Grab! Quick Question: I bought 10 small (all <1"; most <1/2") hermit crabs at my LFS to help clear diatoms detritus from the substrate of my 80G FOWLR. Before putting them in my tank, I became concerned that they could pose a threat to my yellow-headed Jawfish and my Firefish. I haven't put them in yet. Is there any actual cause for concern? Thanks, Steve.
Urchin Crab Hey guys- I got a fairly large red hermit crab, has black hairs, white spots and fits in a large Mexican turbo snail shell. my question is, I picked up a small “orange eyed” black urchin, and it looked like the crab was going after him last night. this morning I can’t find the urchin, but did see about 10 spine clippings in the sand were the hermit crab was. Are crabs natural Is it possible that the crab killed the urchin, or is it more likely the urchin is hiding? should I remove the crab? (the crab is ill tempered, eats all the snails and what not). Thanks for all the help, Justin
From the dogs shop he provided me with certain algae fish pellets to allow them to eat, but they are not appearing to want commit near they, do you have any ideas on everything i normally/is always to supply them?
– Healing Hermit – Hi there, I have a red legged Hermit crab which I am really worried about. He did he usual hiding before shedding. Disappeared into his nice little cave I made for him. I noticed he was hiding inside his shell on Sat. He usually remains grumpy for about a week after shedding. However on Sun he came out of his shell and was missing his big pincher and all his legs down the left side. I don’t know if one of the fish pulled him while he was weak or if he just decided it was a good time to loose his shell. I left him in the tank to reduce his stress however I noticed that some of the fish were bothering him. So I moved him into the sump. He seems to be fine and he is eating etc. I have knocked the calcium level a bit higher to give him more calcium to recover. Don’t know if this will help. Is there anything that I can do to help him heal faster. Thanks, Rob.
