    I was looking around on the food dicussion and ran into the link to http://www.epicureanhermit.com/ . I ran into the story about copper sulfate and thought that i would investigate the food that i feed, which is FMR. Sure enough, there it was in the ingredients and iron sulfate too( not sure if that is as bad as CuS2). I thought FMR was a trusted brand. It is harped about in most web pages that i have come across. So my question is what is the best store bought food to feed or is the best option to make homeade stuff?

    Commercial pet food is not generally made to make your pets healthy, but to make the company money. FMR is actually not a good food, consisting mainly of non-nutritious fillers.

    The good news is that I'm making my own crab food, which will be available here through HCRU very shortly.

    It's best, of course, to feed fresh, natural foods, but there are some foods that are better than others. You need to read a label carefully to determine which foods are good, and which are not.

    There is an article here:

    About the dangers of commercial food and how to pick a decent one.

    And here is a list of adulterants to avoid when buying a pet food:

    Hope it helps!

    Don't hold your breath. When I called and spoke to the owner about errors on their caresheet he hung up on me. A little defensive...
