    I was at petsmart today and for .67cents I bought a bag of Herring Steaks in the cat treat section, not only does my cat love them but the crabs can have them too. They are 100% natural, this is what the package says....
    Wholesome, made from dried pacific herring with no by products, fillers or rendered materials.
    Natural, absolutely no additives, preservatives, colouring or artificial flavorings.
    Nutritious, a natural source of Omega 3 fatty acids, protein, natural vitamins and minerals.
    Safe, processed under strict quality control to meet the highest standards of nutrition.
    Ingredients: 100% dried pacific herring
    Crude Protein Minimum 65%
    Crude Fat minimum 12%
    Crude Fiber Maximum 1%
    Moisture Maximum 10%
    Omega 3 Fatty Acids minimum 1.6%
    There is a website too snack21treats.com
    I wonder if they have other kinds. I thought for .67 cents that was a great deal and they are in a bag not a can.

    They will be getting them tonight, I have not fed them yet tonight cause I was out shopping and when I found these I snatched them right up, I may go back out tomorrow to get more since my cat loved them so much. I am going to go to the website too. I forgot to mention too that they were on sale for the .67cents but they were I think less than $1 for the bag and if you are just giving them to the crabs they will last a very long time.

    Wow that sounds great! I just went to the grocery store and bought some beef and chicken and turkey and shrimp and put it in the freezer. Now they can have protein all summer.:)

    I went today to buy 2 more bags so I had them but need to go to another petsmart to see if I can find different kinds since they are so cheap but I also found....(read below)....

    As for my find today....
    I was in the treat section for hamsters and such and found...
    Brown's Extreme Garden Goodness $2.79 per bag
    Ingredients: Carrots, Zucchini, Green Peas, Green Beans, Green Bell Pepper and Sweet Potatoes
    Sodium and Cholesterol free and no added sugar all natural
    Crude Protein (min) 14%
    Crude Fat (min) .75%
    Crude Fiber (min) 4.5%
    Crude Fiber (max) 6.5%
    Moisture (max) 12%
    Then....
    Brown's Extreme Wild Berry $2.79 per bag
    Ingredients: Strawberries, Cranberries, Blueberries, and Blackberries
    Sodium and Cholesterol Free and no salt or sugar added all natural
    Crude Protein (min) 4%
    Crude Fat (min) 1.5%
    Crude Fiber (min) 5.5%
    Crude Fiber (max) 7.5%
    Moisture (max) 12%
    At this rate I will have foods for ever if I keep finding stuff like this. I did find some other all natural chicken and duck strips for dogs that also could be cut into pieces but the bags were $8 each and that was too expensive for me right now. They were also all natural in the dog treat section I didn't get those though. Just giving ideas on stuff we can use to feed our crab babies.

    Wow they sound like food from Vicki's store! :D Awesome!
    But you should try to get it from another store if they have it, not Petsmart. Petsmart treats their animals horribly, and not even only hermit crabs! :(:mad:

    Wait, are you talking about commercial hermit crab food? Do you use that stuff?

    My petsmart is pretty good in my area. I did see the top off the hermit crab cage one day but I put it back on, humidity could have used a boost but the tank is pretty good and the other animals are really treated good. When I go I always look at the animals since my 2 daughters always want to see each animal in there and we check out their conditions and most of them all seem pretty good. I don't mind buying food from petsmart or petco that I can't buy anywhere else so I do what I have to to feed my animals. I am not sure where Vicki gets her foods for her store but I do buy from her also. I just found these foods and had to share, they are such a large amount and will last a very long time (even if some do expire after 1 year, that is still a long time).

    It sounds great! I Usually try not to buy from pet store because of their conditions. I never buy animals there and try to get supplies elsewhere. zthe petsmart near me is aweful. I get them to get better hermie conditions but I can't try to press them on another animal because they will jsut get sick of me. :rolleyes:

    That's great! :) I never actually went to a Petsmart, but I heard this lady worked in Petsmart and she investigated it and made videos on how horribly they treat their animals.
