    I keep rescue rats in addition to hermit crabs, and when I have one that needs a nutritional boost, I feed "Green Mush" as a supplement to their normal diet:

    HealthForce Nutritionals Green Mush for Pets 10oz

    I wanted to ask if this would be okay to give to the hermit crabs as well, or if it is unnecessary, or if it could benefit them in some way. Thanks!

    You'd have to look up the ingredients that aren't on the safe list, to see if they are ok.

    Whole Leaf Barley Grass...safe
    Whole Leaf Wheat Grass...safe
    Nettle Leaf...safe
    Spirulina...safe
    Broken Cell Wall Chlorella...unknown
    Horsetail Herb...unknown
    Burdock Root...unknown
    Alfalfa Leaf Juice...safe
    Dandelion Leaf Juice...safe
    Barley Grass Juice...safe
    Kamut Grass Juice...unknown
    Oat Grass Juice...safe
    Carob Pod...safe
    Soya Lecithin...unknown (I would lean toward the 'unsafe' though)
    Nopal Cactus, unknown
    Icelandic Kelp...safe
    Nova Scotia Dulse...safe
    Enzymes: (optimum absorption, cleansing) Amylase, Lipase, Protease, Alpha Galactosidase, Cellulase, Bromelain, Papain, Co-enzyme Q10 snf Ginger Root...not sure, but I'd assume unsafe

    Also contains a comprehensive Probiotic Mixture: A. Agilis, L. Acidophilus, R. Arrhizus, DDS-1 Acidophilus, Bifidus, L. Bulgaricus, A. Brasilienese, B. Brenis, P. Chrysosporium, A. Citreus, L. Casei, P. Calcis, S. Cellulasae, P. Denitrificans, S. Faecium, S. Fradiae, P. Flourescens, A. Globiformis, S. Griseoflavus, P. Gelatic, B. Lipolyticum, A. Luteus, A. Lipoferum, A. Lwolfii, B. Laterosporous, P. Marinoglutinosa, , B. Macerans, P. Nigraclens, P. Putida, L. Plantarum, B. Pumilus, B. Polymyxa, B. Stationis, L. Salivarius, B. Subtilus, B. Succinogenes, A. Simplex, B. Subtilus, S. Thermopolis , A. Terreus, M. Verrucaria, T. Viride. , K. Zopfit...I know crabs can have organic plain yogurt, but this seems like a little much on the pro-biotics.

    You could trial this and see how they respond, but I don't think I'd try it personally with all the unknowns in it.
