    I have a ton of food from the addiction store & I always offer a few different things to my little guys every day, but for the past few weeks, they havent been eating much of their food. They are just munching away on the big sand dollar that I have in there for them. Is this a sign that they dont like their food, or something else? or do they just REALLY like the sand dollar more than all the other stuff that they used to go nuts for?

    They aren't like us and will eat what sounds good. They eat what they are lacking, so it sounds like they are lacking in calcium. Do you have any cuttlebone or egg shells you can give them?

    as for egg shells, should i just take an egg shell & wash it and put it in there for them? :think:

    You can do that or if you want to feed them the egg as well you can scramble it together.
