    I can't get mine to eat anything. They don't move. I know they won't last long at this rate of not eating. There is no sand in the food or water bowls and they are in the same place day in and day out. I've tried many different foods but they don't come for anything. I even went back to commercial food to see if they would come for that since it was what they were use to eating but that didn't work either. Good luck.

    My crabs absolutely love the Addiction store foods. I have 8 crabs and there's always more sand in the bowls than food in the morning. Do try to divide the foods up into 'food groups' - you can see www.hermitcrabcuisine.com if you want some help doing that. That way you can start up a rotation of what food from which group you feed - i.e. when you're choosing a protein, you can grab something that they haven't had for a while, and the same when choosing a fruit or veggie. The important thing is to offer as much fresh food and fresh variety as you can along with the dried because dried foods don't have the juices and oils that fresh ones can.

    As for recipes, my favorite is to buy a few shrimp from the store, steam/saute them with olive oil, and top with a little lime juice. You can also put dried coconut on raw chicken with lime juice, microwave until it's cooked, and feed it with some veggies. Those both smell absolutely divine! There are a lot of good recipes at the EH site Vicki mentioned - I recommend you check it out!
