    PP's eat things that are on the ground and fall from trees in the woods and also bugs and ocean food. E's are ocean eaters. They need more seaweed along with ocean fish and shrimp and a little fruit and veggies. Basically the same thing just make sure the E's always have seafood. And always have fresh salt water.

    Thanks=) the only reason I end up not liking feeding shrimp is it smells up the tank, so I go more with freeze dried shrimp, doesn't smell as much

    I found one last year in May at a petco. They had maybe 8 of them with their PPs. Havn't seen them since. I'm hoping they get some this spring as well because although that one E has not gotten lonely in the least I keep thinking she might. Weird thing about her is she socializes with the purple pinchers like they are siblings, she is the most social crab in the tank  :huggies:
