    Can crabs eat oatmeal...just like the Quaker oats that you get in the cylinder shaped box? I was just looking for something to feed them (cuz I saw a thread that said that the Zoo-Med hermit crab food wasn't good to give them), and I'm giving them some watermelon, but I was just wondering if plain Quaker oats are ok.

    I'm pretty sure it is (you better ask vckums though). And if you make the option like I did to make your own hermit crab food instead of giving them commercial food make sure it is a balanced diet. Watermelon and oatmeal alone is not very nutritious alone, so try out something like the recipe I have on my post called Ultimate Food which is very nutrient dense and I also made it to attract hermit crabs and mine go nuts over it!:D
