    Not all hermies like everything. Plus, if this is the first time they are being introduced to new, fresh foods, then give them some time. Sometimes, when something is first introduced to the food bowl, it takes them a couple of times to want to give it a try. Don't be alarmed.

    I agree with Chuck Norris, and also, they might be munching on it at night and you can't notice it. They eat so little there's no way to know unless you smooth the sand around the food dish and see if there are tracks the next day.

    Hey "Chuck" welcome back...haven't seen you around in awhile!

    As for the question....hermit crabs are like toddlers sometimes when it comes to food. Don't be too alarmed and try some other foods.
