 Hermit Crab Diet’s?

Does anyone have Hermit Crabs, if so what do you guys feed them? I feed mine fresh fruit and veggies with a little bit of meat scraps but rarely. What about you guys?

All of that is good as they are scavengers, but they still need a good Hermit Crab food as the main source to get the proper vitamins. Also, put a piece of cuttle bone (for birds) in this is a good source of calcium which they also need. I have had some of mine for 9 years. I feed mine 2 sources of Hermit Crab food and as treats, give everything from coconut to chocolate tidbits, (my large ones love chocolate and will pig it out! Just make sure the main source is Hermit Crab food.I also make sure there is plenty of clean water to drink (or bathe) and mist the inside of my terrarium daily. This makes them feel good and active and almost always play musical chairs with the extra shells.
