Tonight's Dinner

Tonight, the clan is having a baby spring mix salad with blackberries, grapes, river shrimp, rose petals, goji berries, coconut flakes, bladderwrack, and bee pollen!

Variety is very important to keep in mind when feeding land hermit crabs. I usually try to offer different foods every night while still maintaining a good balance of foods from each food group.

How do you keep all those ingredients from going bad before you use them all? (I have no idea how many crabs you have....I'm new to your blog.)

The fresh foods are simply foods that I have on hand in my refrigerator, and I keep other foods frozen. I usually buy things like an entire papaya and freeze it off in little sections and just thaw one out at a time.

The rest of the foods are dehydrated, so they last about a year or two as long as they're stored properly. I keep them in a cool, dark place and buy them in smaller amounts. :)
