Product Description

Florida Marine Research has developed a food that most crabs will eat, enjoy and be able to maintain a healthy life cycle. Other crab foods will have unpleasant odors, will harden thus rendering it inedible and be more costly. This has been also developed with food oils which will help promote successful molting and will allow for an indefinite shelf life. This product weighs 2-ounce.

I purchased this hermit crab food from another vendor at one point because I was under the impression that is one of the best hermit crab foods available on the market. It is rather affordable (far cheaper than purchasing at a petco) Naturally, it lacks many of the essential vitamins and nutrients a hermit crab needs. It is not high on calcium or carotene, both are very essential to a healthy hermit crab. You will need to supplement the diet with a cuddle bone, and possibly some dried carrots or corn or other fruit containing carotene.

When just feeding them this, two of my hermit crabs died shortly after molting. They suffered from loss of color, and I wish I had known at the time that I need more carotene in their diet.

The food is crumbly, and I believe it is a cross between pellets and crumbled food. So for those of you who don't know if your hermit crab prefers pellets or crumbled food, i guess it offers a little bit of both. It is also a fairly moist food, and feels much moister and more crumbly than the other food I have tried (zoo med). If you are very serious about keeping your Hermy healthy and alive, yet are not prepared to make fresh food every day, my best bet is this or one of the other pellets, supplemented with dried fruit. They sell hermit crab fruit salad that seems to have worked well with my surviving hermit crab.

I give it three stars because, for obvious reasons, it doesn't give a hermit crab what he needs, which is kind of the point of food. It is OK as "one" of the foods, but not as a sole source of nutrition.

I also want to mention there are other factors, and it might not have solely been the foods fault my hermy's died, but either way, if you're going to get hermies, do your research, and don't chimp on providing him all the essentials.

She's had "Lava Perry" for 6 months or more now, & he likes it fine.. no issues with it that i know of.
Hermit crab is thriving, this price is also much less (than what i pay at Bensons' $6) when i ran out.
