    Tonight's menu??? Depends what tank you visit!

    Saturday is deep-clean day in the 75G, so thoes guys are having EGGS, scrambled with seasalt, dried carrots, spirulina, and mangrove meal. They also have a stinky pile of TUNA! ~~~~I always treat my crabs to the really smelly, messy stuff that they tend to bury, right before a deep clean. :chuckle:

    The other tanks are enjoying sliced FLORIDA strawberries, sprinkled with wheatgerm, dried crystal shrimp, chopped parsley, and mangrove.

    :cowboy_grin: I made mine gooey fruity oatmeal with honey & added in a dab of asorbic acid (vitamin C) & sprinkled some of the oatmeal with bladderwrack & spirulina. I served it with a pile of Worm Poo, Earthworm plus flakes & blackberry leaves....yum. Noone has eaten much of what I have been offering them the last couple of days so I am expecting a pig-out tonight (hopefully). :dance2:

    bowl of fresh fruit containing banana, blackberry, strawberry sprinkled with some of Vicki's products (steph made it and i'm not sure what she put in there)

    and in a shell they got some E mix and some worms.

    at 1:40 AM i got up to go to the bathroom and glanced in the tank. in the E mix shell there were 2 crabs and it appeared there were another 3 sitting in line waiting a turn. now, had it been any OTHER time than 1:40 AM i would have taken pics but i didn't want to turn the lights on and scare them away. that would have been an awesome pic for the store's testimonials.

    Vicki, i'm VERY much impressed with the new stuff i bought from you. there has been a feeding frenzy just about very night since i received your stuff. even the downstairs tank had evidence of a feeding frenzy as there was stuff pulled out all over the place. what are you putting in there to drive these guys crazy? it's like crabby crack...

    Thanks again, you ROCK! :hareiam:

    I found the page at Foster's & Smith.
    I do have the mangrove meal from Vicki's store, but I was wondering about the chunks I've read other people mention.
