    I've read some owners have fed their crabs shrimp tails. I was wondering if a little meat from lobster tails would be fine?

    they are fine as long as no seasoning was used on them.

    Another thing - if you buy shrimp that you have to peel (i.e. they have the legs and back shell still on them), save the shells and steam them in the microwave (put them in a mug or something and cover them with water, microwave until the water starts disappearing - it was surprising how much water they absorbed!) then lay on a paper towel to dry before freezing them so they don't stick together in a huge ball. Mine got dragged all over the tank last night!

    sometimes lobster tail is served with garlic butter, and garlic is not safe for crabs. Otherwise, the lobster tail or just the exoskeleton would be a wonderful addition to your crab's diet. I remove any blackened or marred parts since shell rot bacteria might be present (although I would think the steaming would kill the bacteria). It might be unimportant, but I habitually do it just to stay on the safe side.
