Electric Blue Hermit Crab Is Eating All The Coraline!

Okay so I adopted a few fish and the crab from my High School. As the neglict had gotten so bad. One of the fish was stab with pencil and killed. The teacher that normal maintained the tank was in the hospital. She did a good job. But never should had left it to immature students.

Anyway Ive had him for about 3 months now and he wont stop eating the coraline! Ive caught him many times. I mean it would be okay if had a bite or two, but hes almost made my lr almost bare.

I've offered other foods to him with no luck. So is it time to take him to my LFS?

Someone stabbed a fish with a pencil?

Are you feeding the crab a proper seaweed diet? If not try dried seaweed or the frozen Emerald Entree. I don't have any problems with my electric blue and the coralline

I tried both. I think I'll just take it to the LFS. Thanks.
