    If we're talking about the same thing, the food in question is organic worm castings. Worm Poop. I know you can get it at the Crabbage Patch and I believe it's Tammy's own recipe. It's called Hermit Crab Soil Supplement, which I guess is the pc phrase for poop!

    It's full of nutrients and my finicky little ones love it. Since I worry that they're getting all the nutrients they need, I always keep a shell of the worm poop in the tank and another with a mixture of cuttlebone, egg shells and pulverized oyster shells so their little bones will grow happy and healthy.

    Yup I sell worm castings. I just got a new vendor and there's hardly any sand in it. I liek it alot better now and it was gone within a day when I put it in the tank.
    And yes, people who bought it do call it crabby crack LOL

    No Mallie, It's worm casings, which is the gentile way of saying it's worm poop. It's finely granular in texture and everyone who has referred to it says their crabs just love it. You can get it from several different on line sites from members of other forums and from 'sister sites' that are linked to other forums.
