What to feed a hermit crab...

I just bought a standard run of the mill hermit crab. Obviously a SW one. Anyways what does he eat? I doubt much of the pellet or flake food will reach him with my greedy fish.

Basically anything, However I recommend fresh or frozen fish. approximately two ounces of it. He won't eat it all at once leave it in for an hour, then through out the leftovers. Use tongs to get it to the bottom. If the fish are too greedy put it under a rock or something.

Send a message via Yahoo to quarryshark
If it is a community tank, he will clean up the leftovers form the other animals. If he is by himself, I agree with above, He will eat most anything.

I say that because I'm not so verbose.
