Seaweed

I've just got some green seaweed to feed to my hermit crabs (I'm running out of algae!)...

I'm planning on cutting a bit up into tiny pieces and laying them on the bottom of the tank for them.

But, on the packet it says you have to remove any uneaten seaweed from the tank after a few hours.

With the bits being so small, this would be impossible.

Should I not worry about getting the bits for the crabs out, and only worry about the full sheets I'll be putting in for my fish?

2nd issue imo if you can place small bits of seaweed on the bottom of you tank and they stay there ya dont have enough water flow !!

hehe, well...They will stay around the bottom, not in the same place!

I've lost a couple of hermits recently, perhaps due to most of the algae in my tank being eaten up?

I'll need to feed my hermits some seaweed or something won't I or they won't have anything to eat?

i guess the question i have is how many do ya have ? the hermits ya lost could be from many reason besides a food issue imo !! im not a hermit fan and only have mabe 2-5 if that ! i think they will get enough left overs from the fish picking at the seaweed and or the seaweed breaking apart in the current !
