Keep an eye on it for mold. Once it starts to mold toss it out.
So exactly how long can you keep it in there then?
It depends on the item. Strawberries mold very quickly. Inthe morning I can see the beginnings of mold. I keep dry foods in there for a few days or more. Usually it doesnt last long enough. I add fresh stuff daily.
When you mean by dry like what?Oatmeal?Dried fruit?Etc.
dried shrimp,chicken,veggies, seaweed. I have a fresh food bowl and a dry food bowl in their tank. That way there's always food in there.
For example tonight they got (dry dish) coconut,rose petals,krill and (fresh dish) apple,mango and chicken
It's definitely worth feeding them the safe foods....even if you feel you're wasting some. I do what Vckums does....keep a "dry dish" mix with one or two of the "freeze-dried" foods (Hikari Bio Pure brand), either seaweed or spirulina powder, and a calcium source.....which I change every other day. Then I keep a "fresh" dish with some type of "treat" from the safe food list which I change daily. The crabs love it and they get brighter colors with each molt. Keep in mind, sometimes it takes a few times of being exposed to a new food before crabs will seem to "like" it. So, keep trying....it's worth it
That's what I'm doing now. Only fruits & veggies.& meat.& flowers.
