For underwater creatures feed one (1) to four (4) mini sticks per animal twice daily based on size. Care should be taken to avoid over-feeding, no sticks should remain an hour after feeding. For hermit crabs feed approximately 2g of food (a thimble full) once a week. Leave food in the animal’s enclosure for 24 hours. Remove all uneaten food after 24 hours to avoid contamination.
Hermit Crab Care & Maintenance: With proper care and feeding hermit crabs can live to be 10 years old. A clean environment free of debris and stagnant or soiled water is necessary for optimum health. Hermit crabs require large amounts of clear, clean water as part of their feeding. Their water source should be changed daily. Ideally, the temperature of their enclosure should be 75ºF(24ºC) with higher humidity and free of rapid temperature changes or drafts. Hermit crabs have no regular dining routine, rather they tend to eat at varying intervals from days to two weeks in length. For the best results feed Hikari Tropical Crab Cuisine in a clean shallow dish once a week. After 24 hours remove the food from the enclosure. Feed an amount equal to 2 grams of food (approximately a thimble full) for each hermit crab per feeding.
