Crab food...

Atari: Exactly which pellets do you use to feed your hermits, and can I get it anywhere online in the UK?

:P

I'm out of them at the moment so not sure of the actual type, but I think I wrote the exact name from the packet when I replied to a previous post of yours.

I do remember they are by Tetra and for bottom feeders.

(4th up from the bottom).

Says they're for tropical, will they be ok? I had these before and they seem quite hard.

Yeah the Tetra ones are hard too.. but they dissolve after about 10 minutes in water. I've never tried Hikari so can't really comment. Here's a list of all the food I use..

Ocean Nutrition Formula One Flakes
Ocean Nutrition Formula Two Flakes
Tetra Variety Wafers
Fortified Brine shrimp
Mysis shrimp
Nori Seaweed

Some of them my LFS sells, but some I have to order online - usually from Aquatics Online.

Cool.. probably best to just use one though and break it into 2 or 3 so they don't all fight over the same piece.

Because each one is a lot of food.. You could probably feed 50 hermits with 4 wafers... how many do you have? It's pure pollution if you add more than a couple a week.

Yeah good idea... with 6 hermits you're fine just breaking one wafer into a couple pieces for them... a couple times a week is more than enough, otherwise they won't bother cleaning your tank anymore.
