Hello XD Im not sure if it is an issue or just that my guys love it. But I have Worm Castings I got from HCP and out of all the food my crabs have they seem to go for that all the time and never bother to touch there other food. Is this ok? I mean there little piggies which i find adorable. But they prefer to flip the one food dish and go for the worm castings or the mineral powder I have. So my question is.. Is this normal? Lol

I keep HCP worm castings usually mixed with the mineral powder and a calcium source (such as HCP's crushed oyster shell or a crushed coral) in my tank 24/7/365. They love them. I still do fresh & dry foods as well 7 they eat a bit of everything. Someone once told me that nutritionally speaking, the crabs really only need the worm castings & mineral powder & the rest is "icing on the cake".
≈19 clypeatus, 4 perlatus & 8 compressus in 4 tanks
They know what their body needs so I let mine eat what they want, mine usually pig out on wormcastings, then don't touch them for a few days and they pig out on the food I put in, just keep offering both and let them choose.
kitty: Not much activity in my tank. One morning I got up and it looked like a tornado went through it. Water bowls tumbled, food dishes upside down. Fixed it all up and have been waiting eversince. ! Nothing. DARN !!
