Ok here is a list of safe foods and treats for our hermit crabbies. Sandra i would love if you could compose us a list of safe household foods and merge it into this list. (Hikari fish foods) Gold Cichild Gold Cichild Excel Discus Red Sinking Carnivore Marine -A- & -S- Micro Pellets Tubilina Sinking Wafers & Algae Wafers Spirulina Crab Cuisine Tubfex Worms Daphnia Bloodwroms Ocean Plankton Baby Freez dried Shrimp Brime Shrimp and many more, Hikari has no Ethoxyquin! Other brands, FMR hermit food & FMR Treat "Shell Shanty" Hermit The Crab Deluxe hermit food "T-Rex" Crab Island hermit food "Ocean Nutrition" Seasweed Select- Red/Green/ Brown Algae. I belive has Etho. "San Francisco Bay Brand" Seaweed Salad "Red Sea" Zooplanton All of the above are Ethoxyquin free. Now if you use shrimp pellets make sure it is free of Ethoxyquin as i noticed alot of them have it in the ingrediants, i will find one that is safe. Now for other foods used as treats or mixed in with daily feedings, Pet Bird foods and treats work well. "Kaytee Healthy Toppings" Coconut & Raspberries Apple Bits Carrots & Greens Mixed Nuts Papaya Also dry from Kaytee "Bird Greens" "Just Veggie/Just Fruit Treats" Brand Veggies fruit Peaches Mango Corn Blueberries Blackberries "Fruit Bites" brand Island Breeze Tropical Berry Garden Gourment Veggies You can also use one drop of Creamed Red Palm Fruit Oil mixed in with treats or food. I will be adding to this list many more foods that are safe. Here are a few foods i use once every other week if that and just a small tiny pinch that does contain the Ethoxyquin but the hermies go nuts over it. "Ocean Nutrition" Prime Reef Formula Two Marine Pellet has garlic in it, Very strong SMELLING stuff. Hermies go crazy for this stuff. "Tetra Bettamin" Tropical Medley And there you have it for now..
